Larry is now resting comfortably at home under hospice care. If any of you kind folks would like to drop him a card or nice LTC to let him know that he's in our thoughts and prayers, this is his mailing address:
Larry Dysart
40 Anthony Rd
North Reading, MA 01864

Peace and Love,
Pete

Sad to say, Larry passed away last night. He was such a special person in so many ways. He had a huge heart and was always willing to lend a hand. Although older than my age, he was much younger in spirit. Kindness was his specialty - he was the quintessential "Grateful Letterboxer".

May he rest in peace!🙏💖🙏

So sorry to hear about his passing. I remember how helpful he was even when first meeting a boxer on the trail.

Such sad news. Larry will be missed. He always made a point of visiting our site. Always willing to help out anyone who needed anything (even brought in an extra tent for our sight once). Larry was always upbeat and positive with a great sense of humor, helpful and informative, and so young at heart. We love you Larry. Rest in peace.

I just made reservations for Andover's Playin' in the Band event. I am looking forward to another fun year reconnecting with friends and making new ones. And of course hiking the trails and finding great stamps.

Ok, now you are scaring me. Just hoping the "horrible" clues are released early before I head out to Andover so I will have a chance to work on them. I won't have internet in my tent.

I’m sorry that I’m not coming this year.
30th wedding anniversary and all that. 😄
I think site 210 hasn’t been claimed yet. I highly recommend it. It is a sweet corner lot.
Hopefully I’ll see you on the trails sometime.

Funning thing is we will be celebrating our 40th while we are there. I had told her that we would head to New Hampshire (where we got married) for our anniversary, but when she saw that we could attend this Letter Boxing event our plans got changed. Got to love her and letter boxing so much.

I just reserved site 20 for Wednesday-Sunday. Hoping my sister might be able to join me, but figured I'd make the commitment now...

Hoping to make some changes in my life this year--just applied for social work licensing & waiting for permission to take the exam. If you're the praying sort, prayers, good thoughts, positive vibes, etc. sent my way would be greatly & gratefully appreciated!

Peace,
