Larry is my friend. I reflect on my life and think of all the people I’ve known and thought of as friends. I came to realize that many of them were very good acquaintances. Larry Batson IS my friend. He was someone who was there for you when you needed them and he was there when you only wanted a friend. Larry was my dearest friend and his passing leaves a great void in my heart and my life. Larry IS my friend and I have no doubt that we will walk together again.
