I am also one of the lucky ones that was able to meet Larry and talk with him at the BBQ that year. That he didn't let his handicap stop him from pursuing his dreams and ambitions should inspire us all and serve to kick ourselves in the ass when we are ready to give up ourselves. This year in Formula 1 we had Justin Meaders to remind us that a handicap is only a handicap if you let it be one.
Things must really be interesting in heaven now that Larry has joined the likes of Jay Jones, Hep Porter, Bob Downey, Lyle Shelton and all of our other legends that have gone west.
