Larry and I shared a homeroom for 6 years: "Cohen" and "Colen" clearly were not going to get separated alphabetically. Larry married my college roommate and sorority sister in our sophomore years. He and Sonia were married for 18 years and had three children. So glad he made it to the 50th. May his memory be a blessing.

I've known Larry my entire life. Our parents were friends - my Mom actually dated Larry's father before she met my Dad! The families stayed close and when Larry was a toddler he started calling Dede and the name stuck. Grandma Dede is my grandkids' name for me. After PHS Larry and I (and many other Highlanders, too) went to UCLA and he joined the same fraternity as my husband. Once he moved to Kentucky (his Mom's hometown) we lost touch and it was wonderful to catch up with him at the Reunion. So bittersweet to have had the chance to reconnect with promises to keep in touch. He was a great guy and he'll be missed.

Dede, that was a lovely reminiscence about Larry and your shared memories.  I knew and liked Larry, but didn't have the privilege of so close a connection with him in Piedmont days.  It is heartwarming to read these tributes to a good man.

Larry and I were good friends through high school and a Sunday school pals...Larry and I could always count on each other to be there as an escort to an event if we lacked for a date. We totally lost touch but would think of him fondly...I am so sorry to have missed the reunion and catching up with him (and so many of you) May his kind spirit live on
