Ive known this man all my life. His uncle was my step granddaddy Wayne Allison.. I called him Zigger.. Any ways Larry was always good to me . He was always so sweet and I would go with Zigger to see him at the police station and he always had me chocolate milk and m&ms . sometimes a coke .. He would let me sit in his chair and he would sit on the corner of the desk and talk to me. I would ride with him and Zigger and go see Gerald .. I loved them they were good to me . And I always thought Larry Allison was so Handsome .. May you all be comforted by the Lord above ..
