May eternal peace and comfort be with Larry, and be felt by his family, in this closure event of Larry's earthly life, but the start of a new, and we trust pain and sorrow free life. May it be, for Larry, and all of the WHS Class of '71,so wonderful, that, as the song says, "we can only imagine!" His passing reminds us all, once again, of our own mortality and how even more precious is our time together and memories.

I got to see Larry several times while he was driving the cab and if he picked me up to take me home he always made sure to carry my bags in for me and made sure I was in my apartment okay. In those short trips we laughed and talked and remembered things from so many years ago when we were all at WHS. I was glad that he did finally join here at the reunion site. Just sorry he wasn't with us in June. Miss ya Larry......... God's speed...........
