"I'll miss you dad. I came into your life after I married your son, Larry. I will forever remember when you and I would grab dinner after I got out of work. I will always remember the laughs we shared when messing with Larry and the times you called me because you were checking on me. You will forever be loved and missed. "

Larry was a good friend to myself and my husband Gary, and we will miss him dearly. "

"Larry was part of our extended family for the 17 years we were neighbors. He would always greet us with exuberance and flash his charming smile, often offering a wry comment or joke. He touched every member of our family, invariably greeting our young granddaughter as "Lady Lydia" and making her feel special. He was the best neighbor, often racing us to clear snow from our sidewalks before we made it outside. He took on neighborhood improvement and safety as part of his concerns. But especially, he was a dear friend, someone to confide in, who was there through thick and thin, and a generous spirit who gave of himself unstintingly to others, enriching the lives of all who knew him. He dearly loved La'Nautica, from the time she was a toddler to graduation from high school, throwing her the fanciest graduation party ever. He was devoted to her, even letting her bunny have free rein in the house. We are grateful to have known you and will miss you--the world is a poorer place without your presence. Marsha and Joe"
