This morning we received word Larry Davis, our client, has passed away. Larry was a true warrior in his fight against mesothelioma. He inspired people throughout the country, including many at our firm. He was the founder of the South Florida Miles for Meso, and he was our friend.
To his family and friends, all of us at the Firm offer our most heartfelt condolences. There have already been several tributes posted online, including one from his daughter, Courtney, and the good folks at the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation and the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization.
It’s difficult, virtually impossible, to accurately capture who Larry was and what he means to the meso community. But, among many other things, Larry was a runner. In fact, Larry was – in one form or another – always running, always pushing those around him. His pace was swift and purposeful. He dared us to match his stride.
Even at rest, Larry will continue to run with us.
On those days when the hills feel too steep, the weather too cold and our legs too tired, Larry will be there, step after step. The memory of his courage, his tenacity and his smile will rally us all to breathe deeply, live life fully, and keep racing for a cure.
