We are so very, very sorry to find out about Larry's illness and passing. We knew Larry and JoAnne from our good times on the bowling league and love for sports. We also have a few mutual friends from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Department. Larry was such a good and well-respected man. Although we had not seen him a quite a few years, it was very sad for us to lose a friend. Our condolences to JoAnne and all of Larry's family. May your many memories together help to comfort you.

This is very difficult time for everyone who knew Larry. Larry was a great person and a great friend. He was also full of love and understanding. There was never any problem that anyone had that Larry wasn't willing to lend a hand with. Larry walked me through many difficult times in my life by just being there, as a good friend. with solid advice.

Larry gave a great fight near the end,, but the lord needed him more because there is a special place in heaven for good guys leaving this world. Larry will be there leading the charge. So remember you will see him again. He will put in a good word for you with all the Saints and their friends, who will truly realize what a great asset he will be to the heavenly father . Larry until I see you again. Both Cheryl and I love you and will see you in just a blink of the eye, because you are in heaven for eternity.

I am so glad I got to know Larry in high school, and was able to reconnect at our reunion a couple of years ago. We then became friends on facebook. I looked forward to his daily post, always filling me with inspiration. He will be dearly missed, but I am glad he is no longer in pain. My deepest sympathy and prayers to the family.
