Hi Laurence <3 I don't recall exactly how we met back when you were in law school. But, we liked each other. I went to your house in Long Island and we went to an Italian restaurant that you loved - I do not recall the name either - but I do recall thinking you were "different" than other guys. You spoke about your family a lot. I felt to Syracuse to see you - for fun... and the we parted ways. Over the years you have come in and out of my mind for no reason at all. There was a day - in 1998 - that I saw you in The Short Hills Mall (of all places) - we caught each other's eyes and stopped for a half of a second. You were with 2 other people so I kept walking. Today, once again for no reason at all, you popped into my mind so I decided to find you on Facebook. And here I am. Frozen and sad and overwhelmed. The Universe has clearly made a huge mistake. My heart, love and prayers and dedications of peace to your family. Your beautiful spirit and smile was tattooed in my mind and I am so glad that I knew you - if even for a little while. xo Michelle
Hi Laurence, we don't know each other but back in 2009 I visited New York from England and I was walking through Central Park when I came across a bench with a memorial plaque in your name and it was a really moving moment for me because all the events I saw unfold on my TV in 2001 suddenly became very personal...this man...a son...a brother...a friend and for the rest of the trip I would try and find your name in all the memorial plaques for 9/11. So here we are in 2022 and I am just looking through an old photography blog of mine where I posed a little piece alongside the photo I took of the plaque on your bench. So I just did a Google search and found this site and what a pleasure to have the chance to get to know you a little! It's clear that your family and friends adore you 🙂
happy belated birthday LP! Missing you a lot.
Wishing you were here today to celebrate your birthday my man!
Larry…god bless you, your family and friends. You’ve achieved in your short life what we all should in a full lifetime, an unforgettable lasting spirit.
Thinking of you and your family, on this horrific day, 20 years ago….Your memory is a blessing to everyone who knew you! ❤️
Thinking of you LP. Miss you. You were a light in the life of everyone who knew you.
LP - you are not forgotten. Not even close. I think about you all the time. Dr Danny is a legend in our home. You’re all such sweet and kind people
For years and years I found it difficult, if not impossible, to watch anything 9/11 related because it would be too difficult to think you were no longer with us. Today I watch as your memory brings a warm smile to my being. I think about how your always positive and one of a kind personality would have enhanced so many of our lives to this day, and every day. Those of us who were lucky enough to know you well are fortunate to have the memory of you that will last our lifetimes. Miss you each and every day my brother!!!
Twenty years have gone by and the pain of that horrible day has not gone away. I worked at the eSpeed division of Cantor on 9-11-2001. My cubicle was located on the 103rd floor of Tower 1. I survived only because I was late into the office that day. I did not know Laurence. Reading through these beautiful, touching, heart breaking remembrances I can see how much he was loved and how bad he is missed. I have never forgotten that day. I never will. Tomorrow is the twentieth anniversary of that horrible day that took him away. Rest in peace Laurence.
Laurence, I never knew you. I have known you through this site, Which I have faithfully followed for 19 years. Your spirit, your zest for life, the love of your family for you, and your endless supply of adoring friends have inspired me. I was 32 when he died. Your Irrepressible memory lives on in those who knew you, and those of us who did not. I am so grateful for my exposure to your story, your zest for life, and your brilliance. It has It has inspired me, for 20 years.
Thinking about you today and the tons of laughs we had on American Trails West Camp In 42 in 1984.
Remembered and missed this day and always...
We will never forget you LP.
Thinking of you today LP. Miss you
LP - Thinking about you today and wishing your family well.
I often think of the last car ride we took together on the LIE, you weaving in and out of traffic like a Formula One Racer on the way back from Passover Seder. I've missed introducing you to my wife and daughters, missed seeing if you could have tossed my kids as far across a room as you tossed me as a child (to a soft landing, of course.) Wishing the world had the 50-year-old version of you but grateful for the time we had. Wishing my family members well on this difficult day.
To Bud, Laurence's dad and an old colleague. I still remember and want to say that you are always in my thoughts and prayers on this day. Although I never met Laurence, I went to his funeral in support of his dad. I will never forget what his mother said, because, I used it with my children for many years. She said that when he was a child, she would put him to bed and say, "now, mommy is taking out all your bad dreams and putting in all good dreams". Every time I put my kids to bed, after that day, I repeated that phrase, for years, and even said that to my daughter the other night. Cherish the life you have, now. Hug your parents, your kids, your spouse.
Laurence, you are missed. You will always be remembered. RIP
Miss you LP. We will never forget you.
