    I remember visiting the store as a toddler. Is it Reardons as a few contributors have said on this site?

    Thank you Kellie for that info!

    Thank you Kellie. A fellow ‘porter’ relayed the news to me when he died, but still good to see it posted here. Many of us knew Larry (The Weeper), but I think we all learned a littler more about him through his eulogy.
