I have two tables in SQL, table one has information, and table two has more dynamic information that is related to table one.  

Table1
ID
LRSN
INFO
MOREINFO

Table 2
ID
LRSN
DESCRIPTION
LAST_UPDATE

I would like to join the two tables on LRSN, and pull the Description of the most recent Last_Update record from table two.  Can someone help me out with this relationship?  Thanks in advance for the help!
