My strong, loving father. You were so much to me. You were an amazing grandpa too. You touched so many lives. So many people love you. I pray that you are happy and peaceful now. I will love you forever. You will always be my Pappa.

I knew Larry for many years as a colleague at WUSTL Chemistry. He was a tireless worker and a friend to me and others. Since his retirement a few years ago from WUSTL he has been missed. Now he'll be missed even more. May God grant all of us... his family and friends, peace, strength, and fond memories of the man he was and will continue to be in our hearts.
