Larry King Memorial

Larry King’s death is a tragedy, but his family and friends are working hard to turn it into good.

While he was still on life support, his family donated his organs to give life to others.

Yesterday over 1,000 people marched through Oxnard to honor his memory and call for tolerance and understanding of others. The best part? The march was organized by two 16-year olds who wanted to do something in his honor and put it together via MySpace, text messages and phone calls. The school administration joined in as well in support of the kids. This is unprecedented for this area. Resounding applause to those girls for making a difference. If I’d known about it, I’d have been there, too.

Larry King’s family has set up a memorial site with a guestbook and photos: Remember Larry There’s also a memorial fund for those who wish to donate:

Lawrence King Memorial Fund

A memorial service is scheduled for Friday, February 22nd at 3:00 PM.
