My loving baby Brother, You already know how much your big sis loved & treasured you. Your beautiful heart, tender bear hugs, blazing smile, unconditional love, & my hero warrior in battle, will be missed. You have laid down Sword in Victory, taking your rightful place in that great crowd of witnesses in heaven, cheering us onward to keep fighting the good fight of faith. I am thankful our heavenly Father, gives us Grace and makes his children eternally one in His Holy Spirit, through His Son Jesus Christ, our Lord—Always, Victorious.. Boy, you got me off guard with this one, your big sis could not fight with you in this last one, but you won this one all on your own, with the mightiest Warrior of all at your side, Jesus Christ. Love & prayer & my sword for our mother, your children, grandchildren, and mine. Until I see you again…

Savannah and I met in the teen pregnancy school. Such a beautiful spirit. When then started working at Wellsfargo where I learned Larry was a business owner of a popular restaurant and Savannah worked for him. Savannah mother shortly passed and her best friend was her daddy. I also had the pleasure of seeing him at Savannah wedding. They did a lot together and recently came in my job together laughing and smiling. Little did I know it would be the last time I see Larry. He smiled a lot. My condolences to the family. I am heart broken such a tragic the day before his birthday which is also my birthday. That would make us birthday twins. Just know there is no loss here. God was ready for Larry and it was a blessing meeting him. Savannah if you need anything even advice don’t hesitate to reach out love you

I knew Larry for almost 20 years as a regular customer at The Tap. He would always make you laugh with his “joke of the day”. He also loved his Alabama Crimson Tide. Many great memories of Larry. He will be missed. My prayers are with his family.
