    Hi—I don’t even know if Larry would have remembered me. We were on the staff of the Santa Rosa High School (CA) newspaper together (he was Sports Editor, go figure), and we “went steady” for a while. I just stumbled upon the obit when I was plugging names of long-lost friends in to Google. I sure didn’t expect to find this…. Larry was a great guy, a lot of fun, and very sensitive. I’m really very sorry for your loss. You lost a sweetheart.
