Sending heart-felt condolences to Larry's mom, sister and entire family. I had the pleasure of working with Larry for the last 3 years. He was a truly a great man and would do anything for anyone. I will miss our talks about the races and his call me crazy days - we seemed to find a common friends all the time. But most of all I will miss him, his sarcasm and his laugh. Rest in peace Larry
