Larry was my closest friend at Oakwood elementary and we kept that friendship going through Junior and High School.  I have numerous great memories of spending time at his house next to Oakwood, reading his old "Big Little Books," going through our baseball card collections together, and listening to Alan Sherman records.  Unfortunately, when he moved to St. George we lost touch for a while and he was gone before I learned he was ill.  I don't think I ever saw him once in all those years when he was not smiling.
