He loved life and the people in it. Lawrence had a passion for helping anywhere he could and making sure anyone around him felt the power of his kind loving heart like occasionally dropping off flowers to his aunt Mariann. 

Being the life of the party you would find him dancing, singing, quoting movies and randomly giving nicknames to anyone.
