> I hate to speak of Larry in the past tense, but he was always very friendly and supportive to MARCH - there were some days when he had more energy than me, even though he is twice my age and has one eye and one leg! I last talked with him at our club work day a couple of weeks ago and he seemed 100% like his normal happy self. That is how I will remember him. As I understand it however, he may live a few hours or a few months in a coma. This is a huge loss for the whole InfoAge community.
Sorry to hear that news. Larry obviously had some health problems, but he
always was approachable and extremely helpful. The guy just seemed to know
everything or who to ask. He is a major asset at InfoAge.
