As I gathered the RDDC board this morning for one of our regular meetings I looked across the table to the seat that Larry always took at our meetings. He sat right across from me and we would look at each other and send signals. As I am the chair he would silently let me know if he felt we needed to move on as the subject was being beaten to death. Or, like a good auctioneer, I could read the slightest move of his finger as a signal that he had something to say on the topic. Always insightful and usually somewhat painful in his honest truth. He and I shared a clear understanding of the role differences between developer and architect. I brought designs and lines to paper. He on the other hand brought the money and took the risks. I would say, you are right, you have skin in the game and I don't. He would end it by saying, and don't you forget that! Then a big Laugh and walk away. Beyond appreciation I truly loved his wisdom, and friendship. I never thought I would lose him so very soon. Much love to all of your fine family who will carry this legacy of great parents on for generations.

I have been following this tragedy and my sincere sympathies to the family. I knew Larry's Mother and Father Leona and Ozzie as my grandfathers (Charles Kushin)sister was Ozzie's Mother. When Larry was young he and his parents visited us in Buffalo and Toronto. My thoughts are with you all.

Jane and I go back to elementary school. My husband shared their love of flying. We spent many wonderful times together. They will be in our hearts and minds forever. Our condolences to Mindy, Rick, Ken and the extended Glazer and Lovenheim families. May the memories and legacy they have built be some comfort.
Love to you all,

I am saddened beyond words by this tragic loss. Because Jane's parents and mine were friends, I first met her when we were toddlers playing in the Lovenheim's back yard. We shared Temple, Irondequoit and Brighton . I was so happy to renew our friendship at our 50th high school reunion in 2013. Jane will be missed but never forgotten.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Glazer family.

I spent several weeks this summer with Larry in Rochester and Washington DC, and enjoyed hearing his stories, and seeing his great big smile.

In the short time I knew Larry, I could tell a few things about him; he loved flying, he loved his work and his family, and enjoyed what life had to offer.

Larry, You will be missed my friend. RIP...

To the Glazer Family- I worked with Rick for a few months when I first started working at CB Richard Ellis- having worked in the real estate market for almost 10 years I was fortunate enough to have met Larry on quite a few occasions. He would stop in the office every now and then and called quite frequently. I am very saddened by the sudden loss of such a great man, he will be missed by many- please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time

I did not know Larry & Jane on a personal level but had the opportunity to work with Larry and his son Ken on many projects throughout Chili.

I had a great deal of admiration and respect for Larry as a Businessman and Developer.

On behalf of the entire Building Department of the Town of Chili we would like to extend our sincere condolence to the Glazer family.

I remember Larry when he was working for Great Lakes Press ; he was so fortunate to have found the right woman to help him in business . As they say behind every great man is a woman . He was one of the lucky ones to have found that woman . My condolences to the family on such a sad event . May the Lord keep Jane and Larry close to him in heaven . I am sure the Lord has some projects for them both to work on up there as they were such hard workers down here , we will miss them always .
Selah .......... Shalom ?
