The Engaging Essentials

RIP: Del. Larry Border – My friend, and a friend to many, Del. Larry Border passed away last week.  I had the privilege of extending my condolences, and those of the entire FPCWV network, to his dear widow Anna last Friday.  Larry was a kind man, surpassed in kindness only by his wife, perhaps.  Not only did he look after new lawmakers, he was known to look after new lobbyists too.  Thanks, Larry.  You will be sorely missed.
