To all of Larry's family, I had no idea the end was so near. I feel terrible about not expressing my condolences earlier. I was in the hospital that whole week but I would have definitely sent my regrets. Larry was a wonderful person and everyone enjoyed when he would join us for breakfast. Chrysa, I deeply regret your loss. Please forgive me. Larry will always remain in my prayers along with you and your mother. It is only by chance that I went on Facebook this morning and learned of his passing.
