A memorial service is being planned for a later date.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a memorial donation to the charity of your choice.
For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?
Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.
- Excerpt from “On Death”, Kahlil Gibran, one of Larry’s favorite poets.
