Larry was my first relationship...he cared about me as much as I cared about him....he had a beautiful heart and protected me from the Hollywood scene while I worked for production companies and television studios..he worked for the dealership and I learned so much about real estate/flipping homes and also...patience...he was my first love and I tried to reach out once he moved to Ne but we lost touch...he was the one man I could talk with about anything...and that smile...always his smile brightens everyones day
You truly are loved and will be missed Larry
