Not sure what to say?

Norma, Jim, George, Debbie, all of our families and friends. Larry was a very special
person to me and touched my
life In so many ways. When we
were kids we made Dagwood
sandwiches, blue angel food
cake, played "Spanish Kitchen"
with mud and hay until Larry
decided it was time to quit and
then an earthquake (Larry shaking the table) would
come and destroy mud pies.
He always made me laugh and
he gave me a love of the

To Norma & Jim, and George & Debbie, and all Larry's friends: I will miss Larry. We hardly had contact in the past many years, but thoughts of him always made me smile - we had such good times as kids. I'm sure he made life more fun for everyone around him, plus he was so sweet and caring.
I'm thinking of all of you.

I feel privileged to have known Larry during our years as guidance counselors in Omaha Public Schools. He was consistent in his professionalism and caring for the youth he worked with in the school system. Larry had a quiet way of getting things done efficiently and without fanfare. I feel he died as he lived... a very private way of leaving this world but leaving a legacy which we so much need in our lives

Larry was one of those rare individuals who always thought of others first before himself. He genuinely cared about the students he served as well as his co-workers. He enjoyed his job at McMillan and it was always a pleasure working with him--great sense of humor.

I worked with Larry for several years at McMillan. I was inspired by his caring attitude in working with students and teachers. He was a respected coworker and always made life more fun at McMillan.

To Norma and Jim, George and Debbie,
Very Sorry I won't be able to come to the Reviewal or burial ceremony. I really would like to come and see you all and any of your kids who may attend.
These days families only get together for weddings and funerals,
Our family is scattered across the country; no kids remain in the place they were raised. It has been this way for generations
I last saw any of you about 10-15 yrs ago at Norma's reunion in Reno.
I haven't seen...

I only knew Larry a short time, But I will always remember the time we spent star gazing in my grandmothers backyard.

He will be missed

Larry was a great brother. We stayed in touch daily for years. I loved that he was not judgemental. Everyone sensed that and felt very comfortable with him. He could make every laugh and feel better about themselves. The world is an emptier place without him. And my life will always have a hole in it.

Larry was one of the funniest men around. He was so kind and gentle and patient. He touched the lives of countless young people (and adults) as counselor at McMillan Magnet Center.
