I knew Lawrence in G13 when we went to Central, we played football together, amongst other activities. I was shocked and saddened to read his obit today and would like to pass along my sincere sympathy for his family. Even though I only knew Lawrence for one year I would never forget him; he was fun to be around and always seemed to be on top of the world. He will be missed.

My Condolences
