We have many fond memories of Lawrence and all the special times we were able to share with him at all our inter-mixed family activities. May he rest in peace and to his family - God give you the strength to know that Lawrence is in a better place -- he's home and will be there to greet you with open arms in the next life! God Bless You all!

I still have vivid memories of Lawrence arriving at our house to fill our gas tanks regularly. No matter the weather, the gas man was always there when we needed him. Lawrence was a kind man. Our deepest sympathy to your family.
