This brings such sympathy and condolences to you all at Larry's death.  But...joy for you, too, that you did have many years with such a sterling person.

At CHS Larry was truly a wonderful classmate to all...a genuine, quality Maroon...with fine achievements in both sports and music.

As a letterman in basketball he had the highest free throw average as a senior.  In music he was in the school's outstanding A Cappella Choir, Madrigals and Troubadors...as well as the annual Musical Moods extravaganzas.  Somehow he also found time for track, too, and to be on the Student Council as a senior.  Who knows what else.     

I am so very sorry that he didn't have more years of life so well lived.  I hope that you will find solace with many, many happy memories.
