I am a native senior citizen of Greensboro and although I never had the opportunity to meet Lawrence Egerton, Jr., I feel impelled to offer my personal condolences to his family and friends. I well remember his very positive contributions in the Greensboro area through his law practice and business achievements. In both areas, he was exceptionally successful by his professional conduct, honor, and integrity. These qualities are certainly in short supply today and he should be a model for us all in the future. May God bless his family and give them his support at this time.
