Was thinking about Larry and the lyrics of this song of struggle and affirmation came to mind:

How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail before she sleeps in the sand?
How many times must the cannonballs fly before they are forever banned?
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind, the answer is blowing in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist before it is washed to the sea?
How many years must some people exist before they're allowed to be free?
How many times can a man turn his head and pretend that he just doesn't see?
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,the answer is blowing in the wind.

How many times must a man look up before he can see the sky?
How many ears must one man have before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take til he knows that too many people have died?
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,the answer is blowing in the wind.

This immortal song by Bob Dylan is speaking of Larry and all others like him. Reading what people have said here  I could think of nothing more fitting to post as a tribute, to Larry and all who loved him.

i also found a song that comes to mind reading Larry`s story:
 
Like A Comet
Blazing 'Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon

Like A Rainbow
Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon

Shiny And Sparkly
And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like The Loss Of Sunlight
On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon

Like A Castle
Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon

Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon

Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like A Sunset
Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon

Gone Too Soon
my prayers are with the whole King family...
