Dear Laura, I am so sorry to hear about Larry. Although I only met him once at April and Jeanne's wedding, he was obviously someone special, brilliant it seems. I am thinking of you. Kim

Laura, the only good part of losing a loved, cherished friend is the walk-through of memories. What a fantastic year or two to get to walk through Larry's life and your life together with so many family and friends. I think Larry will be alive for many for a long time as a result. My love to you, Crawford

RIP Larry.

Laura- my thoughts and prayers are with you.
