Larry was an amazing man, and besides instilling in me a passion for belt buckles, he was a perfect example of kindness and cheerfulness at all times. I worked with Larry in Transport several years ago, and still cherish the buckle he gave me. I was just talking last week about the holiday treats he used to bring to work. He will be missed. My deepest sympathies.
Linda so sorry to hear about Larry. I worked with Larry at the hospital. He was one of the kindness man I have ever known. He always had a smile on his face. He will deeply be missed.
