I am saddened to have heard the news about Larry. I worked with him for a long time at the State data center. Larry was very smart and always very pleasant to work with. In addition to working hard, he was always smiling and liked to have fun. My sincerest condolences and prayers are extended to his family and friends.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Larry was such a special person. When I moved to Lexington in the seventh grade the first two people I met were Larry and Kyle. I will always be indebted to their kindness and friendship.
