    I’ll miss you, Larry. You inspired me to help others & work hard. You’ve helped me more times than I could count and always had a positive attitude. You were a friend, a role model & a father figure. You were a pillar of the community & meant so much to so many. You were a blessing from God to us. You will never be forgotten. Heaven is stronger with you there.

    Larry was always like a grandfather to me and for that I must say I loved him. All throughout my childhood I never got to meet my grandparents because they had all passed. But Larry had always sort have been like a grandfather to me. He told many stories, new and old and shared his opinion on the world from his elderly perspective. And yet he worked hard too, for me, and my family, and for that I cannot thank him enough for. He will always be remembered by all who knew and cared for him!
