I am so sorry to hear about Larry. Larry was a great teacher and mentor to many. I was the Assistant Principal at Blacksburg High school while Larry was there. Larry and I had many talks about science and hiking during the years we worked together. I really enjoyed knowing him.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Byrd was here at Blacksburg High School my first year teaching. What a mentor! He always gave me good advice and a helping hand. He was a great teacher and a great friend! I am sorry not to attend tonight - my father-in-law passed away this week also or I would be there. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.
