Funky Revelation

If he was murdered it had to be by somebody who had never met the man. The guy I knew never had an enemy. Had to be some random predator who couldn't see beyond his own selfish tunnel; who dropped in to a foreign and gentle universe and turned the lights off in a most gruesome way without realizing the precious nature of the beautiful man and unwitting victim.

We will miss his impish grin, his throaty baritone, or was it a tenor? I always get confused.

He read the blog regularly, always had a kind word, loved the music, was a voice of encouragement to me in my music making and otherwise.

This was an awful, barbarous act, and I am sure totally unnecessary. May his spirit find instant peace and sanctuary, he lifted our own hearts and spirits with his playing and singing countless times.

Our hearts fall into darkness with your absence Larry. You will be sorely missed. You were just a beautiful cat, in the very best sense of the word.

You stupid fucks, you have to knock off a lousy music store. You couldn't fucking rob a bank, you fucking fucks.

Gee, what a senseless tragedy. I'm sorry for you, Robert, and all his friends and family.

Hopefully his spirit is in "The Packing House" of our dreams and all of his brilliance will shine there forever.

I didn't know Larry, but any senseless death is a loss for all of us.

My best wishes to his family and friends.

Everybody that knew the guy was a friend, we were two of many.

He was just amazing. Senseless and insane.
People suck.
