Uncle Lawrence was quite a character. He always had us laughing. He was a good and decent man who worked hard. I have a lot of great memories of working for him and Aunt Nell in their restaurant. I send condolences to the rest of the family. May you find comfort in your memories.

From: Debbie Sitar
Relation: Niece

I remember Uncle Lawrence with a smile. He always made me laugh. I worked at Wellington Restaurant for him a way back. He always had us rolling on the floor with laughter. “The Napkin” episode was especially hilarious. Us kids (Larry, Darlene, Neil, Lor, Jimmy and me) used to drive our parents nuts, but those were some great memories.
He certainly changed his habits over the years, got healthy, became an avid runner, quit smoking…
Auntie Nellie and family, my thoughts are with you. I am sure that both Jim and Lawrence are up in heaven looking down on us and enjoying each others company. Our memories keep them in our hearts.
