“[I] never knew it was going to be this hard but it’s also fun. I enjoy every day and every day is an adventure. You wish you had a couple more hours in each day.” – Larry on being a single father
“I hope that she understands that no one’s perfect and people have triumphs and people have tragedies. And her mom really … soldiered on and she came from nothing and she, you know, lived her dream. But I also want to make things a cautionary tale … and give her the tools that she needs to where she has the opportunities that her mother and Anna’s son, Daniel, you know, won’t have.” – Larry on is hopes for his daughter.
“It’s hard to move on in that way because you have this little 47-pound reminder of her mother walking around and you have all these images that are still so much very alive that you have to deal with every day. I want to keep Anna’s image alive in a positive way. She could light up a room. And now her daughter’s taken her place and she’s lighting up every room that she goes into, trust me. I feel it every day.” – Larry on his daughter.
