Our beloved son, Laurence, was a truly unique person, with a passion for life as huge as his heart. He lived his too-brief 32 years fully and joyfully, inhaling life in enormous breaths, savoring each moment of it. He adored and was adored by his family and friends, many of whom he had known since boyhood. But he cherished most dearly the special bond he shared with his brother, Danny, who was his best friend and confidant. How Laurence loved his work and how he loved having fun! Laughing gleefully at life, at himself, and making others laugh with him. Jokingly nicknamed, “Mr. Hollywood,” by his friends, he delighted in being a part of the Hollywood “Celeb Scene”.
Laurence heartily feasted on all that life had to offer – but he also gave back with the full measure of his being – freely, eagerly, and always, without being asked. Whatever was needed, Laurence was always there – to listen, to support, to pitch-in, to do whatever it took – whenever and wherever. Nothing was ever too hard – or too expensive – for those he loved.
Although Laurence’s life was tragically cut short, we feel blessed to have had the priceless gift of his 32 years of love, and to feel the pride and fulfillment of having raised a son so sensitive, caring and special as he was. His shining example will continue to be our great source of comfort and inspiration. May he rest in peace until we join him.
Mom, Dad, and Danny
