    Even though I never worked directly with Larry, he knew me and always remembered my name. He was a sweet soul.

    So sorry to hear Larry has left this world. It is a sadder, less affectionate place for it. Larry was both my client and my friend. He always had a kind word to say and eager to spend time with anyone acknowledging him and praising him for hard work and willingness to share his concerns so even others could be helped if he was worried about them. I will never forget Larry. Rest In Peace.

    He had a great smile, an ease and kindness that lit up everyone around him. The world needs more of that and less ugliness. Sad to lose him, but so blessed to have known him.
