message for Larry's family

     I had the honor of opening, for Larry, back in the early 1980s. He was a very gifted and kind man.
     That day, Larry had travelled, for many hours, to get to the Boston area, and his travel group had arrived late. Larry had helped with set up, performed for several hours, was swarmed by hundreds seeking to talk with him or to sign an album, and was completely exhausted by the end of the evening.  Despite this, he called me back to his dressing room to compliment me, to encourage me, to offer his help toward making my first recording project,  and to pray for me and my ministry.
   I was just the warm-up; he'd never met me before. He owed me nothing. That kind of thoughtfulness and encouragement reminded me that his was a life transformed by Jesus. He will be greatly missed, but we will see him again and then there will be rejoicing.
