    Thank you, NewTek (Larry Shultz)

    I'm posting this on request of Camilla (as she doesn't have a log in here) to express her gratitude to NewTek for the fine gift for Larry. Quote below from Camilla...

    "I have to take the time to thank NewTek (especially Rob Powers) who have, over the years, recognized Larry for his full worth as a 3D Artist and teacher. Thank you for allowing me to use the logo on his stone because it so represents a career he loved, but more than that, I'm sincerely appreciative of the gift that was the stone itself."

    I'm speechless... How many 'big' companies would do this or even allow it. Great gesture NT! Larry deserves this, wherever he is now.

    Thanks for posting this, it is a sign that the world isn't completely lost after all.

    I posted this on my Facebook page with the photo. Amazingly graceful gesture NewTek.

    The company that makes the 3D software I use bought this headstone for a recently passed artist that used Lightwave. What other company would even think of honoring a user of their software like that? Lightwave artists are special, and Larry Shultz was very special, he helped make 3D animation what it is.

    SUPER classy Newtek!

    And certainly a heart-felt tip of the hat to Rob Powers. Well done.

    Larry will certainly be remembered.

    Wow... brings tears to my eyes. What a wonderful way for NewTek to honor Larry's memory and show his wife how respected and important he was to the company and this community.

    NewTek may not be the biggest players in the game, but they have the biggest Hearts.
