    I am really sorry about Larry. I had so many laughs with Larry over the years. He was a good one and we lifted many glasses together.

    I was a very close friend to Larry for a lot of years growing up but lost touch with him as sometimes happens. I was very sad to hear the news, what a great person he was! Everyone that knew Larry loved him and he will be missed.
