have a memory or condolence to add?

Hi Paula,
So sorry to hear about Larry. I was speaking with Ray Portante last night and he told me about his passing.
I have such fond memories of Larry when he, my father, my wife and I were were training together in Tae Kwon Do under GM Kim at the Monsey school. He and my father became good friends. There is something special about the Martial Arts that brings people closer together. I remember Larry being such a kind and gentle man, but beware of his side kick. He was an excellent Martial Artist, and a wonderful person, and I am saddened by the news, but I only have fond memories of him, and will cherish those memories forever, as a comrade in training.

Dear Paula and Family,
My sincerest condolences to you. I never met Larry, but knowing you and hearing you talk of him occasionally in yoga class let me know what a loving bond you shared. May your many happy memories carry you through these difficult days.
