Larry and I go back a long time. He is my second cousin, his grandmother and my grandmother were sisters, and he was always around. He use to come over to my grandmother's house and let me ride his bike. I remember his Nova, candy apple blue, that he use to drive us around in. I was passing by an automotive service shop today and saw one that reminded me of him. I also learned later of his untimely passing. Larry, I know now you can finally rest. You will be missed by everyone you touched in your short life.

I was Larry's neighbor. He was a great guy. We didn't talk alot in person but did talk several times online. I was sad, to see he passed, I was there the day he passed. No one could've saved him that day but and for that I'm thankful he did not suffer. You will be greatly missed Larry. Rest in Peace my friend.

I spoke to Larry on the phone just last month. He was at his beloved cabin in Oklahoma and was very upbeat, telling me of his misadventures and eclectic mix of neighbors. We shared a laugh or six, as we always had . I will miss our conversations, both silly and serious. Larry had a command of the english language that few possess. His creativity could make you think deeply or make you laugh until you snort. You will be missed my friend.

I loved you, Larry, my friend and my book buddy. We never made it to that book shop we talked about going to, and you never did let me come clean your house like I offered. I texted you last night, not knowing you were already gone. When I didn’t get an answer right away like I normally do, I have to admit that I was afraid something might have happened, and I was heartbroken this morning to find out I was right. If I ever run into your son, I will make sure he knows what a great guy you were. I will miss you so much.

Larry was a kind, compassionate, and helpful man. When I told him that I missed my great-aunt's tigerlilies, he send me seeds from his grandmother's house. He helped me with my spiritual path by showing that a person could break out of one's own box. I met so many great people through him and several have become friends. He was smart and witty with an intellectual's sense of humor. I never got to meet him in person but he was still a dear friend whom I will miss.

Well, old chum, when I make it to where you are, we'll lift a tankard of ale....and I'll even try the haggis, just for you, Sir. 💖

Larry was/is my best friend of 30+ years. We’ve been inseparable since the day we met. There won’t be a day that goes by that I won’t think of him and feel his absence in my life. I will miss him more than words can express. My world became a whole lot emptier when he left

I met Larry online nearly 20 years ago. He helped shape me into the person I am today with his acerbic wit, practicality, storytelling, and unbridled silliness. We never met in person, but he had to drive through the town I live in to get to his land in Oklahoma. We made plans to have coffee and they just didn't pan out. When I talk about my friends on my computer, his face is always the one that comes to mind.

Instead of saying something dark and nihilistic here (that'd have us both in tears laughing), I'll say that I always wondered what happened to "Silhoette" after she was banned from your forum. I'll also say that I know you're laughing and using some pretty colorful language in response.

You made a bigger impact on the world than you could ever begin to know.

I met Larry almost 20 years ago on an online forum though never met him in person. He was a funny, sincere, wise and sometimes crotchety guy with a big heart. I am going to miss him very much. Love you Larry x
