I am so sad to hear this news. Diane and I send our most sincere condolences. I was so fortunate to have had Larry in my life. He provided friendship, guidance and support to me and many others in our industry and he will be truly missed.

Mim, we often warmly think of our trip with you and Larry to Italy. I can still see Larry walking a blazing pace ahead of all of us in Positano and also his ordering of vanilla ice cream with Hershey chocolate.

Sending my most heartfelt condolences to Mimi and all of your family. I have wonderful memories of our parents together. My last time seeing Larry was when you stopped to visit us in La Jolla after a golf trip to Temecula. We so appreciated your visit. Again we are sending love during this time.

Jane (Janie Banash) and Eric Sagerman
