I worked with Judy for years and became friends. In that friendship I got to know Larry, he was always smiling and joyful and always new how to have a positive from a negative. Everytime I saw him he would have me laughing. One of the qualities I loved about Larry was the love he had for his family. He loved his beautiful wife so much. He was always smiling when he talked about his children you could see his face light up when he talked about them and his grandchildren. A good man has gone to be with the angels. Rest In Peace Mr. Larry.

We once had lunch with Larry together with my wife Sherr at Applebee's along Independence Blvd. We enjoyed that time together. We shared stories and lots of laughter.

Once in a while, Larry would visit us in our house along Commonwealth Ave., then we had lunch together at the Diamond Restaurant. Those were good times!

Although we only knew Larry for a short time, his passing is merely a comma in our too brief relationship. We are going to fully fellowship throughout eternity smiling with joy as we look upon the face or our Wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ. His happy demeanor and cheerful smile will be greatly missed until that day. Blessings and peace to all the family...Virginia and Hugh Weiss

We are so sorry to hear about Larry. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. This has got to be very hard on the family having to go through this at this time. I know you have lots of friends that would love to be with you right now but we can't. But please know we are all thinking about all of you. God Bless you. Gwen and Bill Coulter and family.
