The database page for Lawrence William Mahurter
Larry and I grew up on the streets and parks in Weehawken. He befriended me like an older brother, always there for me. The furneral was as bad and sad as life can be. A year afterwards I found myself in Nam. The past couple of years I've been invited by a local high school to talk about my experiences in Vietnam. While visiting DC I took a rubbing off the Wall, and Larry always comes in with me to help me explain as best I can. Larry was always there for me and he is still helping his younger friend. I never forgot my dear old friend and his kind, loving family.
