    Family: We lost a good one when Lawrence left this world...Bless you...I know you are hurting with the loss of your mother just a few months ago...I knew and appreciated Lawrence first back in the 1970's and 1980's when I was shipping apples and produce on Lawrence's trucks...Not only was he (and your mother)a good business associate but most of all he was a good friend...Bless you all, may God be with you in this time of your loss and grief....Love you all, Carlton Wingate
