dear Bella and family,
I saw that Larry has been passed away. I am glad that I have met him often, also when he was already ill. It was always a pleasure!
I hope that you will be very strong in this difficult period.
much greetings from Holland,

Larry and I were friends since middle school. I was in the 9th grade and he was in the 8th. We were both 5' 4" tall and could high jump 5' 6" so we both qualified to represent our school at the city meet, however they would only take one participant from each school. I was older so I got the opportunity, however my doctor would not sign a release for me to go since I had broken my collar bone earlier in the season. Larry went to the meet instead. I don't recall how he did in that meet, but I know how his high jump career turned out. He grew to 6' 4" and went to WSU on a track scholarship. I think his all time best was about 6' 10" at a time when the world record was just over 7'. I grew to 5' 6" and never jumped higher. After decades Larry ended up in NY and I in NJ so we rekindled our competition on the tennis courts and golf courses. Such a great guy, I loved him, we'll all miss him until we see him again.
