    My sincere condolences. Larry was a kind person and a great guy to work for, as he was always looking at how people could develop and learn.

    Larry will be missed at the coming family reunions. I so enjoyed getting to know him a little more every year. He was a very kind and thoughtful man. I will miss him dearly.

    Larry was a life long friend who I will miss greatly. He was one of the “good guys” that you occasional meet in life, and both attended and documented the “gatherings” that our close friends have had over the years. We will miss him at the upcoming “gathering” this next summer.
