Our most sincere condolences on the passing of your father, grandfather and great grandfather.

Being a very good friend of Larry I can honestly say that he got all of his outstanding qualities from his father (and mother) Harold and Judy. Harold was a terrific person. The kind of person that would give you the shirt of his back. He was always giving for his synagogues. That always was foremost in his heart. Harold you will be missed physically on this earth but ins spirit you will always continue to live on. My deepest sympathy to the entire Katz family. May Harold be comforted among the mourners of Zion.

B'DE - Larry & family. We are deeply saddened to learn of your loss.

Whenever we were in Florida and your father was there, it was always a pleasure to be able to speak with him.

May you be comforted amongst all the mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim.

I cannot begin to know what to say. What he went through and how strong he was after is simply unbelievable. Building himself up and raising such a beautiful family quietly and firmly is a lesson to all of us. His bar mitzvah is something none of us can forget. Deep love of Torah and the Jewish People. May you all have the strength to continue, we all know that is what he wants.

Jean and I were saddened by the news of Harold's passing. He enriched my life as a living example of how to overcome adversity, survive the most heinous horrors, and yet retain his love of G-d and Judism. He was an outstanding example of how to be charitable, love and support your family, the remembrance of the Shoah, and the Jewish community.
