"Missing you so much. The pictures brought back a lot of fond memories of our trips together. I had to laugh as I remembered those times. I don't know why I am still here, your are gone as is Lilly, Mother, and now your Dad. I hold you in my heart and look forward to when we are together again."

"I always thought that we would grow old together like we did in life. My childhood was greatly enhanced by our life together. Every time I hear a large sound in the basement at Dad's I think that is just another of your inventions. Then I remember that you are not there but you will always in my heart. Our many escapades continue to bring smiles as does our vacations together as a family. Love you brother."

"You are light now
   dancing upon the air
           whirling with an accordion shadow
   deft and strong pushing
           the giant  hammers of chrome
     snowy planks and monumental ebony beams
      making music sweet and slick
        singing, deep and covered in
   the soul of happiness

   You are no longer heavy with}
                the sorrows that you carried
the things that you have seen
             and said goodbye to
  you are pitch perfect

             the acoustics are divine
over the clouds and in
          the  luxurious  riverbeds go
and all will feel though never
     see your emancipated glow"

"It's because of Larry, whom I didn't know well, that I play mandolin and am learning banjo. Since his death, I've learned quite a bit more about him from Paul - what an amazing guy! He'll certainly be missed by many people - I'll always have fond memories of him."

"I am shocked and saddened to hear of Larry's death. He headed our little group, the Austin Delphi Users Group (ADUG) of which we had both been members for over fifteen years. Larry always had time for good conversation. He enjoyed our company, and we certainly enjoyed his leadership. Larry took pride in being informed on a wide range of subjects, especially in relation with computers, and he both educated and elevated those around him, not only with his information, but with his enjoyment when someone learned in his presence.

Larry was a good friend, and I will miss him very much.

"I am so sorry to hear of Larry's passing.  He was a dear friend and president of our ADUG computer group.  I very much looked forward to meeting with Larry and the other guys each month.  Our conversations would often stray from the narrow confines of geekdom into the world at large.  Although we may not have solved any of the world's problems, we certainly gave most of them a good thrashing!  The beautiful music selection for the memorial evokes memories of Larry's kind and gentle nature.  Hereafter, this song will bring a smile to my face as I remember my friend.  -- Robert Clark"

"Larry was always full of good humor and cheer at our monthly meetings.of the Austin Delphi User Group.  We started as a large group of programmers, learning how to improve our skills, & wound up as a smaller group of fast friends.  Larry was our president and we will miss him greatly."

"I had the pleasure of knowing Larry for 44 years.  He was my friend and my brother-in-law.  In all of those years, I never heard Larry speak unkindly of anyone.  He was devoted to his family and known for his kindness.  He had a keen interest in the sciences and we often had talks concerning various subjects until my eyes glazed over listening to his detailed explanations.  I will sorely miss Larry and the world will feel his absence."

"I was Larry's first baby sitter.  More like a playmate since I was a huge 10 years old.  Every summer from age of 10 till I think I was 15.
Along came Ricky & Greg.........We had so much fun together.
Larry is sorely missed by me, now and forever.  He was my computer
geek.   I have enjoyed seeing the pictures and have memories of most of them."
