Larry taught my kids how to altar serve at Ave Maria.  He was the kindest, most faithfilled man.  We have many fond memories of Larry,  My heart is full of sorrow for your loss.  He made a lasting impression on many children who attended Ave Maria School and Parish.

I grew up in the same neighborhood as the Gaso family, and we knew Larry and his family well.  I will always remember him as such a good and kind man.  I extend my deepest sympathy to his wife, children, and grandchildren, and may God rest his soul.
