I grew up living just three houses down from the Mills family. Marge and my mom became friends when Tina and I we babies so we have been lifelong best friends. I spent A LOT of time at their house and Larry and Marge were like second parents to me. I will treasure those memories forever. I was only able to visit them once since they moved to FL but they welcomed my family and I into their home like they always had. Larry grilled burgers and we reminisced about old times and they told my children about all the shenanigans Tina and I got into as kids. We had a great visit. Marge, Scott, Tina, Tim and all of your families I love you guys and I am so sorry for your loss. RIP Larry til we meet again. Thank you for being like a second dad to me! ❤️ Kim Willis OConnor
