Happy Birthday, My Friend...


REMEMBERING MY FRIEND
As some know, Larry Moore, my best friend for 57 years, passed away after six weeks in the Intensive Care Unit of a hospital in Las Vegas as a result of a motorcycle accident on his way home from that city the end of 2003.  I miss my friend every day and mark his passing on the anniversary of that date and on this date, July 30th - his birthday.  That image above is the last photo taken of us together just a few months before his passing.
HE WAS LOVED BY MANY
My bud was a retired Los Angeles Police Officer - 31 years on the LAPD - and a man who made friends everywhere he went.  He loved his two daughters and has missed his two grandchildren grow up.  His eldest daughter, Kara, is now a Detective with the LAPD. 
A MAN OF MANY TALENTS
Not only was he a cop, he was also an athlete - a terrific swimmer and football player - and a wonderful composer and singer.  At his retirement party he was joined by his good friend, Bobby Sherman, as they belted out tunes to the Karaoke machine.  He cut a record or two and actually was the opening act on local television when The Righteous Brothers performed.  Here's one of his tunes, co-written with Eddie Cochran.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMIGO... WE MISS YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY
I always loved this image of us together - that halo effect seems perfect.  Happy Birthday up there, amigo...
