RIP LK. I’m gonna miss my bother from another mother. I always looked up to him and Steve growing up but I still got my jabs in when we were clowning around. That laugh and gap tooth smile will definitely be missed. Jk but not really. You could light up a room LK and for sure make it louder. I’m heartbroken he had to go so soon but it’s gods plan not ours. I hope we see each other again behind those pearly gates but until then God bless Larry’s soul and his whole family.

I went to Jounior High School with Larry at Saghalie Jr. High. I remember him being a sarcastic fellow. We were in same grade and also in track and field together. He always wore a basketball jersey or some sort of sports gear. It's sad to see such a young soul be taken so quickly. I'll always remember you Larry, my friend, and I even pulled out my year book to see what you signed in it back in the 9th grade. It says,.. "Casey stay cool and have fun this summer". Larry will continue to live through everyone who shares good memories of him, I know I have a few of those memories and I'm happy I knew him.
