LP: Lori and I still talk about one memory that stands out in our minds. We had just (and I mean just) entered the sleeping over phase of the relationship, and one Sunday morning we grabbed a bagel and went to meet you, Jeffrey, Jon Semon and I'm sure Adam and a bunch of others in Central Park. I had eaten an 'everything' bagel with cream cheese, and ended up with about 50 poppy seeds throughout my teeth. Lori said nothing -- I guess she wasn't comfortable enough in the relationship yet. So there I am with a huge smile on my face greeting the boys in Central Park, when, without hesitation, you say 'Zach, you sav'n those poppy seeds for dinner.' Clearly, loud enough for everyone in the vicinity to hear. I've tried to use the line since then, but it doesn't seem to work as well. We miss you.
Hey Larry, Sorry I haven't said Hi sooner ........ I know you love the press, so let me pass along a little blurb I found about you in Esquire magazine. ...............................The two numbskulls George Clooney and Julia Roberts are talking about their past misadventures while plugging Oceans 11 in the December issue -------------------------------'Does anybody ever try a pickup line on you?' George asks. 'Like, they come up and go, 'So, what's a nice movie star like you doing in a place like this?' Julia answers,'Strangely, I haven't heard that one. I did have a guy come up to me once a few years ago in a magazine store. He just walked up and says, 'Do you wanna have dinner with me?' I was sort of speechless. And then I was like, 'No. No. No!' And he was like, 'Why not?' And I was like, 'Well, first of all, this is New York City, and I'm a girl by myself, talking to a man I've never seen before.' There was a certain charm to his chutzpah.' 'You got to give him that,' George says, tilting his head in a show of admiration. 'But then he ended up on Entertainment Tonight a few years later, telling the story of trying to pick me up.' ------------------------------------------Way to go LP!!!! Miss you, KARPE
I never actually knew or even met LP. It just so happened that the day after the terrorist attack I was looking at a yahoo website and I came across a paragraph about LP. It had his website there, so I went to it and that's how I found danny's e-mail. I just wanted to give all his family and friends my sympathies. When I was reading over some of the comments in his guestbook, I could tell that he was a really outgoing, and fun person. It's so sad that he died. There's no too many people that have enough guts to crash Catherine Zeta Jones' and Michael Douglas' wedding, or ask Julia Roberts out on a date. LP sounded like a really good guy and I know he will be greatly missed, but to everybody that knew him, just remember that he is in a better place and one day all of you will get to be with him.
Although I had the pleasure and privilege of knowing you for only three short years, it seems as if you were a part of my family forever. None of us can ever forget your smile, warmth,and the sheer enjoyment of being together with you. The love and happiness that you have showered upon your mother, myself,my children and grandchildren will never be forgotten, and in that way you will live on forever. Love, Marty
Wow...your eyes are as breath taking and smile as beautiful as they were when me you & Danny played in your back yard in 4th grade. The stories in the newspaper about you were absolutely great! Its sounds as though you brought much joy into the people's lives that surrounded you...what a natural gift you have to make people laugh. As a result of the disaster, I for one can say that I live each day to the fullest. I love, I forgive, I live unlike I ever dreamed I could. Its just so unfortunate that it took this to open my eyes to the real priorities in my life. My 3 beautiful children can vouch that they seem to have a different mommy. I pray for you and your family to some how find peace within one day. God bless. Peace be with you.
LP, Sorry I spelled 'sorely' wrong. Please come back and do something about it.
LP, I am so grateful that I got to see you in August at Todd's wedding. The pictures from that wedding my wife and I took are, thankfully, filled with your smile. I am also so grateful that I met you at Syracuse one snowy day in which you demanded that I get into your car to listen to the Jerky Boy's first tape (b/4 anyone had heard of them). Of course the rest is history - a complete friendship filled with more fun times that most people could only dream of - in between studying of course. You are soarly missed. However, even though I am not able to get new 'material' from you to help forget about the daily grind of life, I feel lucky that I was able to be a part of your life - something that I will cherish forever.
Laurence: I have been trying to write something to you for a while, but I have just not been able to find the words. Melissa and I think about you every day and are truly devastated from these events. As you probably know, we had a son, Max Harris. He was born on October 8th, so he missed your birthday by a day. He is unbelievable! He smiled for the first time this weekend â?? without help from his gas. He actually can rip them louder than Guppy! Max will never meet you personally, but through our stories, memories and your family, he will have a Polatsch influence in his life. We miss you and will never forget you. Love, Andrew & Melissa
Larry, You are such a great guy, I'm sorry we didn't spend more time together at the reunion. Its amazing how the years get behind you and you lose sight of what is really important. Your gusto for life is a shining example for us all. My sincere condolonces to your family. Tara
LP--Just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving. Last night we went to dinner for your mom's birthday, and did everything we could to make her laugh, like you and Danny always did! You were missed very much, but I know that you were there. Love, Betsy
Laribol...(How do you spell Laribol)? Happy Thanksgiving! We missed you this year but we know that you were watching all of us. How many cakes do you think your mom served? Do you think that she hid any under the bed? I spoke to your mom today to wish her a happy birthday. It is not going to be the same without you...nothing will be the same. Hugs and kisses...Jamie
LP, Although we barely knew each other at Michigan, I recognized you at Syracuse and was glad to see a familiar face. We became friends and even dated. You returned from Spring Break with the news that your parents met friends of my family in Florida and that we should go out. It wasn't meant to be, but I have some great memories of you. After September 11, I described you to friends. I said that even though we didn't keep in touch, if we ever ran into each other on the street, we would have stopped to catch up and then we would have each gone our own way with a silly smile, remembering a certain snowy night in Syracuse.
Laraball.... Your smiling face and bright eyes were truly missed this year at Thanksgiving but you will always be in all the Silverman's hearts. We have so many happy memories of all the holiday's we spent together as one family. Last night we had dinner with your mom on her birthday and we spoke about that great party you guys made for her on her 60th. Whatever you did it was always first class all the way. Don't worry about your mom - we will always be there for her. Miss you.....Richaball & Nanciball
Lardabar, Happy Thanksgiving Larry....We all miss you so much and think about you everyday. I spoke to your mom the other day, and we had a nice talk. I will always be there for her to talk and to listen (my second mom). Laurence, the Silvermans love you and miss you and laugh often when we think about how many fuuny stories you would tell us. Well, I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving Lardabar and miss you much. Talk to you soon, I will check in later.... Love always and thinking of you, Tracy Silverman
LP, We just Finished dinner and are thinking about you. We come to your site several times a day. First thing in the morning, afternoon, and night and after reading what everyone is saying you should be proud. I will have a few drinks in your honor! Miss you today and everyday... HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE
Dear Laurence, On this first thanksgiving without you, we want you to know that we think of you everyday and miss your wonderful smile. We will do our best to always be there for your entire family and will never forget you. Love, Sylvia & Bert
Lawrence, I did not get to know you very well, but the times we did meet you made strong impression. My brother always says you were one of the happiest people he knew and it seems that everyone that had the privelege to be part of your life feels the same way. Your presense will be missed greatly, but your spirit will live on in the hearts of all the people who knew and loved you. Kevin
LP, Just to let you know I will be thinking about you all day today. Remember, you will always be with us in our spirit and in our lives. Don't forget that. Love ya kid, GB
Hey boy, Different Thanksgiving without you this year. All the boys miss you... Adam
Larry, I can't believe all the amazing things people have written to you. I just read about Julia Robert's comments in Esquire magazine; you're never going to live that one down. I can't believe we are going to have Thankgiving without you. Cuz, I love you and miss you. Bryan Schwartzman
