Tribute Album to Larry Bright. # 1

Here are some photos that I found or scanned of my Late Friend Larry Bright...My First Friend in Cape May Court House, Nj,and My Best Friend in High School and Beyond. Sad how few pictures we took back then, (we weren't camera fanatics like we are now) but some Picture memories are better than none... Gary

Larry Bright Jr. left this link to a new fotki account he just created in remembrance to his Dad --- good going Larry Jr.!!! >http://public.fotki.com/lardog12345678/

    Clara Gearing Up!!!
    An angel disguised in leather! She did more than she'll ever know, she gave me back my big brother and for that I thank her. The past few years we had seen so much of Larry that even my kids really got a chance to know him. Him and Clara even brought the bike down here to ride. Clara is a very special person and I know that God has other plans for her.

    Deer Hunting with Larry Bright.   My First and Only Deer   Dec  1980,,,  (in front of our Del Haven House)  (This was Larry's Pickup Truck)  Thanks for helping me Larry!!!
    Gary check out last years deer. I have never been a trophy hunter and was not about to spend several hundred dollars on a taxidermist but this buck was so huge that I preserved it by boiling it down in a large pot for 20 + hours added 1/2 cup of bleach for several more hours the end result is above my kitchen sink in the same album.

    Nice deer! Kind of a non typical antler rack. Deer is the primary meat in my diet. Did Larry initiate you into hunting?

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Hi Alan,,, yes,,, Larry was into hunting and got me interested too... This is the one and only deer I ever got and yes, the rack was wierd!!! (YOU ARE VERY OBSERVENT!!!) I got it mounted and still have it... Someday I should take and post that picture... but so much to do!!! Cheers,,, Gary

    I am Soooo  Glad that Larry and Clara Stopped over to see me!!!
    Hi Gary when I looked at the thumb nail I thought they were riding in the snow. Brought back memory's of winter rides me and my late ex wife used to take. I remember stopping and going into a store having to take off my glasses because they fogged up from the cold upon going indoors. I left them on the counter when I left and was pulled over and fined for riding with no eye protection. Seems Larry really enjoyed life!

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Hi Alan!!! Thanks for your comment about my late friend Larry,,, that was nice,,, no this is not snow,,, it's clam shells. Here by the Atlantic Ocean in Nj,,, clam shells for driveways are cheaper than stone!!! And I think, prettier!!! http://public.fotki.com/GaryGS1/home_pictures/tribute_album_to/img_0070.html Cheers,,, Happy Holidays,,, Gary

    Here is snow in the same view!!! http://public.fotki.com/GaryGS1/travel_albums/america_feb_2003/new_jersey_snowstor/img_0292_digging_out.html

    Hi Larry Jr... There were alot of happy times, we forget or never knew and it's by some stange set of circumstances that we encounter the past thru gateways we never imagined existed. Your dad lives in you now and all the people that loved and knew him... You can help to keep his spirit alive. Gary G. Schempp

    Hi Mrs. Bright!!! I was soooo happy to see your message here!!! Yes,,, this is what I remember too,,, soooo many years ago,,, almost 35!!! And,,, I forgot about our saying "TOMORROW NEVER COMES"... wow,,, thanks for reminding me!!! But we have found out that "Tomorrows Do Come" and they don't often bring the carefree play days of that we enjoyed in the past.
    Yes, now we know ,,, tomorrows become yesterdays and with that I hope that the pain that you your family, friends and all the others that have so enjoyed Larry have endured will ease and settle into an appreciation that we had Larry in our lives for as long as we did...
    Please stop back in here to visit anytime,,, It is always good to hear from you!!! Your family friend,,, Gary G. Schempp
