I am saddened to hear of the loss of my dear friend and mentor, Larry. He has been my tele-ophthalmolgy mentor for 12 years. I last spoke to him in August. He informed me, then, of the battle which lie ahead for him. My sincere sympathy to his family. Larry was a kind and generous friend. We used to call each other "cuz" (cannot remember how it ever started:)
Peace and love to my cuz, Larry

I was a second year medical student in Little Rock when Larry showed facinating pictures he had taken of patients eyes. He told amazing stories as he taught...some that I remember more than 10 years later. Now as an ophthalmologist, I recognize the true gift and love that he brought to his work. I consider it an honor to have been one of his students.

Dearest Becky, Sydney and David,
I am devastated by the news I just received - I cannot believe that Larry is gone. He was the bright spot at the Jones Eye Institute and I enjoyed every moment we shared working together. His talent was enormous and so was his spirit. Larry and I used to laugh and say that we were "twins separated at birth" but I would quickly add that "he got the brains." I have never known a kinder, more thoughtful gentleman in every sense of the word. I still proudly display two of Larry's photos in my office and I treasure them just as I shall treasure the memory of his friendship. Please know that my thoughts are with you and give my sincere condolences to his "much adored" sister. With all my love, Marsha

So sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved husband. I regret that I did not know until today so I missed the service. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Becky and family,

I was so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. Gerry informed me by email right as I was headed out of town for a cousin's funeral. You couldn't have asked for a more patient, loving and consderate boss/instructor/friend. I was very proud of the work he taught me. Give big hugs to your children and know I will think of you often. Your indomitable spirit will keep you going.
