Rasky’s Ripple

In memory of Larry Rasky, 1951-2020

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of men

from “Ripple,” Jerome J. Garcia / Robert C. Hunter, songwriters

Our family has been overwhelmed by your words about Larry, and we hope you share them here.  You will also see donation links below for two organizations that Larry held dear — the MSPCA and Team Harmony.  Please pick or split between both in lieu of flowers.

We’ve come to realize just how big Larry’s ripple effect was; so many stories about what Larry meant to you, how he made you feel, and even how he helped you.  We want you to share a story.  It could be long, it could be short, it could be a song lyric, but we want to know what Larry meant to you.

Let us come together here and use this space as a virtual community.  Given the times we are in keeping us apart, these stories will sustain us.  
We look forward to gathering together.

Also, turn on the music (playlist below).  Larry would want that!
