  10. I wanted to share with you my short history with Larry. I met Larry in December 2014 in Nanticoke refinery. Immediately, you cannot help but like him. Larry has such a smoothness about him. Larry gained the respect and confidence of many people in that short period. As for myself, I cannot imagine the sadness that your family is experiencing. Larry was so proud of his children and grandchildren. I had the opportunity to meet you all via jpeg. Larry made more of an impact on my life in three month than people that I have known for years. I am going to miss my friend.

  27. Dear Mary, Amy and Andrea
    Words cannot describe the feeling I sit with back here in Denmark thinking of Lawrence. Not being able to be there makes it even harder to understand that Lawrence is now gone.
    In this difficult time of grief I will always think back to Lawrence as one of the greatest fathers (and grandfather) I have ever meet. Lawrence as part of the “Henry family” took me in as own family and gave me the best possible year in Canada. For that I will always be grateful.

    Lawrence, thank you for all. You will always have a special place in my heart.

    Thoughts goes to Mary, Amy and Andrea.
