    The Larry I know… (a lightwave icon)

    Having spoken to him on numerous occasions, I don’t feel that he would want us to miss him; for that matter… doubt highly that wouldn’t even wish that we honor him.

    Perhaps its best to simply pay tribute to him with respectful memories in how he has inspired LightWavers worldwide.

    Many years ago, he inspired me to set up a Lightwave user group her in Europe and in doing so… I ended up pissing allot of people off. Larry and I laughed together about this on more than one occasion to say the very least. He’s still quite alive in my mind, and it is there that he will remain.
