His youngest son Glen and I were like 2 brothers. I was always at there house . We were about 17 or 18 years old. Every time we came in from partying Mrs D always had something cooked for us. We came in one morning, saw fried chicken in the fridge, we ate it all. Well about 2-3 hours later pop came in the room , looking for his chicken to go crabbing. I hid under the covers, he always remind me of that nite. Love those people.

To the family of Mr Larry. I’m so saddened to hear about his passing. I had the pleasure of taking care of him when he was hospitalized in 2018. I got to see him again during hurricane Barry. He still had the same bright smile. He will be missed by all!!
