  • William J Ersbo says:

    My condolences in your time of grieving. I am blessed to have known such a gentleman. Rest in peace Mr Lar and watch over us all.

    • Ted Lazaris says:

      This is a sad day for all of us. We’ve all lost a warm and wonderful person. I know my brother meant something special to each and every one of you, to Phil, to my wife Kathy. To Rosemary, to his kids, his grandchildren, personally, he was my friend. I could talk to him about anything. He always has some great advice ready if you needed it. He had this trait where he could always turn a dull party around especially for me, he made my laugh. He knew how to be serious at times and he also knew when to joke around. He always found time to be with his friends, but always his family. To some it may feel he left a lot of things undone. It feels that way to me, because I miss him. But the pain runs so much deeper for his wife Rosemary, and his sons, daughters and their spouses… Michael (Lori), James and Rocco (Kristi) Nina (Terry) , Tammy (Abel), Connie (Jamy) Sunday, and his 17 grandchildren. All I can say is let’s just be thankful for all the special moments that my brother has left us. And with that, I hope that my brother will continue to live on within our hearts and minds.

  • Dear Ted, Our deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family for the loss of your brother, Michael. He, along with all of you will be in our daily prayers….Mario
