"I am very sorry for the loss. He was an excellent teacher and my best memories of middle school were of his class. He will live on through so many of us. I was really lucky to have had him as part of my life. Wishing you all peace at this time. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers."
"Mr JLarry Roberts was a Fantastic Teacher that brought the best out of his students!! He was creative, thoughtful and a interesting person!! He touched many lives and inspired us to voice our thoughts to the world in the classroom and then on Facebook!! I am saddened with the loss of him and will miss him and his comments that I enjoyed reading everyday!! Prayers to his beautiful family!!"
"Dear Jill and Family,
It is my deepest sympathy which I extend to you and your family at this time. I hadn't heard much about Larry until the past few years when we connected on Facebook. He had such a wonderful sense of humor that I knew whenever I saw a post from Larry, it would make me laugh! He was great! It appears that his students really adored him and that is the greatest tribute a teacher cam receive. May God give you strength in the days ahead."
"I am sorry for your loss. As I posted on Facebook upon learning of his passing, I am shocked. I am also saddened that someone who reveled in his former students' lives on social media left this world way too soon. I might not have been the best student in his class, but I always respected him. I respected him more once re-connecting with him. I see others have commented on his music, his classroom assignments, and his movies. I remember the line "Get in the car, Red," from the movie Badlands. I still chuckle at how silly that line seemed to me more than 30 years ago. It will mean even more for me from now on. I will miss you, sir!"
"Dear Mrs Roberts,
Your husband moved, molded, and shaped me into everything I am today. He was a wonderful man, I share stories of him with my friends and family, including my late son. He was only my teacher for a year, but in that time he taught me to think, dream and believe. Mr. Roberts liberated me from my own personal hell. He got me the help I so desperately needed, by turning in my class journal to the counselor, my father was not a kind man, you see; and that year I never had to see him again, thanks in large, to Mr. Roberts.
My sincerest condolences, to you and yours; the world is missing a great man."
