Larry liked to be incharge, the center of attention, make a grand entrence, and put on the biggest party with the most party favors. Larry liked to help, if he seen you doing something he would tell you how you should do it. If you needed financial help when he had it he gave it.
Larry liked opportunity and giving others an opportunity. While he owned his business even though things eventually went wrong. He had the chance to be incharge and give others an opportunity if they wanted it. He made sure his friends and family members that needed a job would have one. And it benefited many while it lasted.
