Thank you for posting Larry's obituary. We get to know everyone in the context of "lung cancer world" and it is nice to read about lives lived before this stupid disease entered out lives. Larry sounds like a great man and many of his contributions will live on. Most importantly, I'm sure that the love he had for you and your family will live on and I pray it will bring you comfort.
