Larry, you were always so good to the kids, whether it was family or not. You always took the time to do activities with them and make them laugh. They will always remember you and love you. You were always caring to my family and I. You will be missed Larry. I have a funny story of the first time we met, but it will have to stay between personal conversation. It was definitely the Larry I will remember. Take care bud.

We had some good times together Larry and I was sad to hear you had been ill and passed away so young. Like everyone is saying on here, you had that sense of humor. When I wanted the car window rolled down and would say”can you crack your window”? You would hit it with your fist and say it didn’t crack.🙄 LOL And, the one time we where at a restaurant and someone sneezed really loud- I dont recall exactly what u said to them but it was hilarious and almost got us kicked out of the restaurant. We eventually went our separate ways but I never forgot about you. I also made a really great friend through you, Jackie, who I still keep in touch with today. RIP Larry. Prayers and hugs to your family.
