Larry was the bright spot of Mt. Auburn. When we were young, my favorite memory of Larry was Christmas at Grandmother Ruth's house. we were the santa for presents after dinner. He would bring the gift to me to tell him who it was for. I will always treasure our last phone call. May you rest in peace and be free of all pain. Love you forever.......

Larry you were a dear friend from the first day I met you in Pekin, IL. We had many fun Doll Collecting adventures together. You shared your expertise of the antique dolls with me and introduced me to many other interesting and knowledgeable collectors. Thank you for including me with your many friends. I shall greatly miss you.
