Hey I don’t know if any of the guys here got the opportunity to ever see Larry "Sweet and Sour" but I believe he was amazing. From the few times I got to see him I had always found him very entertaining as a heel. I saw him in Albany at a small CZW show for the first time and I just loved him from first time. He was in a 3 way match and said my town was so bad half way through he just got up and left in the middle. I was upset because I just dugg his character so much. Kinda like a Flair/HBK mix. I saw him in ROH several times and had always hoped he would come back at some point but I guess that won’t be happening. Hope he finds the peace he was looking for. Feel free to share any fond memories of Sweet and Sour.

I heard he has bipolar...Which is not to be messed with. I am a massive Sweeney fan and hope he does one day return to one of the bigger Indy feds out there. His stuff in Chikara was gold!

Such a shame. Always hate to see the mentally ill not get the proper care.

This is a sad day folks.

Oh my god, that is so fucking sad.... Shit man.

Hope he's having a drink with Trent and J.C... Very sad. I've had a lot of dealings with the mentally unstable, and my heart went out to him when i heard about his problems. My thoughts are with his family.

Shit, man, suicide? Thats the biggest worry when dealing with bipolar disorder... I have freinds and family who suffer with it, and they are always on my mind.

RIP Larry... May your mind be finally be at ease.

I just woke up and then read this,I knew he had a disorder but never expect this.

I watch his work in CZW,IWA-MS and mostly Chikara stuff,I agree his Chikara stuff was great...

rest in peace.

I hope Larry found the peace he was searching for. Being bi-polar myself I can relate all too well with him.

Here's a poem I always think of when I hear someone committed suicide. Even if your not religious, its still a powerful poem.

To my dearest family,
Some things i'd like to say
But first of all to let you know
That i arrived OK.

Im writing this from Heaven,
Where i dwell with God above
Where theres no more tears or sadness.
There is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy
Just because I'm out of sight;
Remember that I'm with you,
Every morning, noon and night.

That day i had to leave you
When my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me
And he said I welcome you.

Its good to have you back again
You were missed while you were gone
As for your dearest family
They'll be here later on.

I need you here so badly
As part of My big plan,
There's so much that we have to do,
To help our mortal man.

Then God gave me a list of things
He wished for me to do,
And foremost on that list of mine,
Is to watch and care for you.

And i will be beside you,
Every day, week and year,
And when your sad i'm standing there
To wipe away the tear.

And when you lie in bed at night,
The day's chores put to flight,
God and I closer to you
In the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth
And all those living years,
Because your only human
They are bound to bring you tears.

But do not be afraid to cry,
It dose relieve the pain;
Remember there would be no flowers
Unless there was some rain.

I wish that i could tell you
Of all that God has planned,
But if i were to tell you,
You wouldn't understand.

But one thing is for certain
Though my life on earth is over,
I'm closer to you now
Then i ever was before.

And to my very many friends
Trust God knows what is best
I'm still not far away from you
I'm just beyond the crest.

There are rocky roads ahead of you
And many hills to climb,
But together we can do it,
Taking one day at a time.

It was always my philosophy
And i'd like it for you too
That as you give unto the World
So the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody
Who's in sorrow or in pain,
Then you can say to god at night
My day was not in vain.

And now i am contended
That my life it was worth while
Knowing that i passed along the way
I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody
Who is down and feeling low
Just lend a hand to pick him up
As on your way you go.

When you are walking down the street
And you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.

And when you feel that gentle breeze
Or the wind apon your face
Thats me giving you a great big hug
Or just a soft embrace

And when its time for you to go
From that body to be free
Remenber you are not going
You are coming here to me.

And i will always love you
From the land way up apove,
Will be in touch soon
P.S. God sends HIS LOVE

Good thread guys, thanks for sharing, I knew he had a drug issue before, when he was let go by ROH but never would of thought would of been this bad for him. Its also sad because I listen to Colts Podcast and every week he has some one who I wanted to know more about and how they were doing. I thought to myself I wonder what Larry Sweeny was up to. Of course this is not the kinda news I was hoping for. I will wear my Sweet & Sour Inc with a new found pride.
