Dear Wendy, Stephen, Wanda, Brian, Laurie-Anne, Casey and familes:
We are so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. He was truly a wonderful person. Always up for a chat and a chuckle. I will never forget, on August 30, 2001, he was the first one that called our family to extend condolences of my Dad’s passing. Many times I chatted to him after that, and he always reminded me of my Dad in such a wonderful way. Lawrence was a true gentleman. I know it is so difficult, but time will in some way lessen the pain, and we are left with our wonderful memories of those that have touched our lives in so many ways. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Our deepest Sympathies to the Anthony Family. So sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad. May you find comfort in many special memories of the one you love so much.
To Lawrence’s Family,
I was saddened to learn of your recent loss.
I will miss Lawrence’s friendly smile, the honk of his horn in Sobeys, when I didn’t hear him either whistling or yelling to me, his many visits to Keddy’s office to have a cup of tea and the many indepth political discussion we have shared over the years! He was a wonderful man who always brought a smile to my face and his colourful way of discussing a certain other political party was sure to make you have belly laughs!!
My Dad always held Lawrence in such high regard during the time they worked together at DOT and Lawrence always took the time to ask “how’s your Dad”?
I will miss him so, and I know you all have pain in your hearts. Cherish all the great memories you have together. A huge part of each of you is Lawrence. He loved you all and was so proud of his family. Look to those wonderful photos, that smile of his is sure to brighten your darkened days! My sympathies. Hugs
Wanda, my heart goes out to you! I know how much you loved your Dad, how important he was to you … he was your hero. You’re in my thoughts and in my prayers. My deepest sympathies to you and your family.
Chris Andrea Jessica and Zack LaRocque

To Wanda, Wendy, Wayne, Sterling, Roxie and family: Our sincere condolences for your loss. Lawrence was a very nice person and always had greetings when we met.

I know my mom will think of him this year when that day arrives. Sincerely, Susan MacLeod
