thinking about you all the time. hope you are at peace, miss you a great deal.
I never knew Larry. I was a a patient of his dad's. Dr Polatsch delivered my son back in 1979 when I still lived in New York. I would like to send my condolences to the family and friends of LP. I read the Newsday story about Larry. What a character, what a wonderful person!!! There is such a likeness to his dad. It's so strange because even though we never met I will never forget Larry. God bless you all, and God bless America!
LP- I knew you as a bud through one of my best friends, Gary Bell. We hung out and drank many beers a bunch of times. My impression of you was, 'what a nice guy.' What a friendly and down to earth guy. LP, I remember you with all the goof ball jokes that we would tell eachother, back and forth, sitting on those beaten up couches in GB's old apartment. As Gary would ask us what shirt looked good on him or not as we waited for him to finally get dressed. 'Hey, does this shirt look ok, or should I wear this one?' GB's shirt stuff went on for 45 minutes on average. LP- all I can say is this: You are in a better place now, and you are good people. This is why, no matter how heart broken I was to hear from GB that you were in one of the towers after the collapse, I then knew that god was with you. You had good heart and soul, and god has now absorbed you into heaven. LP you are among many, many people that were trapped in those buildings that had no way of getting out. Many of those people we knew, somehow, in different and varied ways, we knew. Some close, some not so close. But, in the end, many of us knew lots of you. In making that statement, the love that we have will be used to enable our friends and family to come together and not take for granted anything anymore. Nor, shall we forget those that we have lost. You will be forever with us, both in spirit and in mind. Forever in my thoughts LP. Richard B Holt
I did not know Larry very well. My memory of him goes back to T-ball, where we played on the same team. He hit two homeruns in one game. For some reason, I've always remembered him for that. My sympathies to his family and friends.
LP, We made a promise, that we would continue your legacy. For me, I can honestly say that I have done my part. Before I engage in anything that I may feel uncomfortable in doing, I always think 'What would you, LP do'. Thereafter I don't feel uncomfortable. You would be very proud. I'm drinking, eating great foods, and enjoying the little things. Thanks bro. Always thinking about you. La Chica! La Chica!
LP, Since September 11th, I've received so many calls and emails from people with such amazing stories involving you that I decided to create this forum on your website so the stories could be shared by everyone. I don't want to go on for ever but I wish you could hear this joke from Jon that your brother told us. Would love to know if you thought it was funny because I just don't get it (though Jon has been laughing endlessly for two full weeks). Also, you would be so proud of GB. Every time we offer him a drink (and a second), he asks himself 'what would LP do?' - Needless to say, he lives life to the fullest now remembering how you lived so positively every day you were with us. Miss you so much LP and will NEVER EVER forgot the best memories of my life - YOU!
Dear Laur, There isn't a morning, an afternoon or an evening that I don't think of you. I'm in Florida with Marty visiting Grandma-ma and Aunt Eleanor. We reminisced, laughed and cried about you. They loved your new buzz cut and I brought lots of pictures to show them. Grandma is seriously considering moving back to New York mainly because of how you and Danny encouraged her to. Please, please ask G-D to install a direct line so that I can call you the usual 25X a day!! I miss you so much! You are with me in my heart and in my mind every minute of everyday. I love you for 'infinity!' Speak to you in 2 minutes!! I love you oh so much! ------ Mom
LP - It figures that you'd be the star of the biggest news story of the new century. Now thats 'crashing' a party. You thought your new hair-do was big news. We're sure that wherever you are, your tormening Zep and sipping martinis with the boys. The whole immediate world loves you and misses you desparately. Dad
LP - I went to the memorial service down at Ground Zero today with Adam and Betsy. At one point we were standing next to Hilary Clinton and Gov. Pataki as they were waling up to the stage. We were thinking of sneaking up on stage in your honor. Last night we went to JL's 35th birthday party. We all missed you. Not a minute goes by that I don't think about you. I love you. DP
