Memories Of Larry

Larry knew every word of all the old songs.  ~Carolyn Morgan, SAU1 Board Adviser and former Vice President.
  When I first met him he gave me a very good welcome to SAU1. When I first started, I was so nervous. I didn’t know what to expect.  When I met Larry, I was traveling with the group. Kaye told them, “We have a new member in SAU1.” Larry was waiting outside for everyone to get through and he took my hand and kissed it and said, “Welcome to SAU1.” That made me feel so at ease, I thought, “Ok, I can do it now.”  ~Lori McFarland, Board Member
Larry loved all music. We often called him the Music Man. He could tell you the year a song came out, who performed it, and where it was in the Billboard charts. We never found anyone who could stump him!  Larry also loved puns. He wasn't always good at them, but he got such joy from making them that it was always fun.  Larry and I were doing outreach for SAU1 at a high school. Larry and I were about the same age. An older woman came up to our table, and asked me if Larry was my son! Larry never let me forget it.  It was my pleasure to be able to provide transportation for Larry until he needed more support than I could provide. We sang, laughed, and enjoyed meals together. Larry would practice what we teach - speaking up until you get what you want and need - by advocating for longer trips with more nights in a hotel.  I will miss Larry's big smile, his wonderful hugs, his music and sense of humor, and his desire to share what he knew to help other people.  ~Kaye Lenkner, Operations Manager
Larry was a really nice and friendly person. I liked talking to him and he liked talking to me. Whenever we were together we always talked to each other.  ~Kathleen Prosperi, Board Member
  Spending time with Larry was great. We got along great. He had a lot of good ideas for the group. He was a great guy.  Larry was just a good spirit for all. He definitely loved people and enjoyed life. He was an inspiration and a go-getter. He was a really funny guy and a blast to be around. It was a joy to be around him.  Larry will be missed, but your brother was an inspiration to my life. It was a good friendship. I loved him and he will be deeply missed.  ~Oscar Drummond, Lead Ambassador and Power Coach, and former SAU1 Board President
 can’t really wordify what Larry meant as an elder in our community, and it’s such a loss to lose him.  ~Savannah Logsdon-Breakstone, SAU1 Power Staff & Former Vice President
