Condolence From: Jenna
Condolence: My sympathies to Larry's children and grandchildren for your loss.

Larry was a special friend to me. I knew him as a very bright, funny, loyal, kind, stubborn, soft, hard-working, man who was tethered tightly to the importance of family, the love for his children and grandchildren, and his faith in God. I wish you peace and comfort in the best of his loving intentions and the warmth of cherished memories.

As open, direct, distant friends, we helped each other through some tough times. I will always remember and be grateful for his generosity, humor, philosophical rumination, creative and clever use of language and proud recounts of events in his life (usually having to do with his grandchildren's team sports).

He shared many music links with me over the years. I'll end with this. Shine on, my dear friend.

Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm
I know it's been comin' for some time
When it's over so they say
It'll rain a sunny day
I know shinin' down like water
