Larry Davidow, teacher and friend to many, will always be remembered for the 'outstanding human being that he was.'
I worked with Larry over our many years of teaching and it has to be noted that he was a 'model friend and teacher.'
I never saw him lose his composure once, and he was especially kind and good to the children he taught.
You may be gone Larry, but, I know that you will live on in our hearts and memories.
God Bless You, Larry!
Thank you for your kindness, and your friendship, and your excellent service as a teacher. - Mary Ann Mastro
