Larry Sturgill was one of the kindest, boys at Pine Acres. He used to walk past my house across from Young's store when he was in first grade and I was waiting to go to school the next year. Played Little League pretty well. I remember him with fondness. Best to my old buddy Freddie. Though I have not seen them in years, Larry's passing makes me sad. We were little boys together.

Larry was my brother , he was also one of my best friends. I love my brother and would do anything for him. I can truthly say we never was mad a each other or ever had an argument with each other. Larry was a person that would do anything he could do to help people, it was so sad that they would almost never reture the help that he needed. We spent a lot of time together when we were younger and would often go to many concerts. when I was playing music he would show up many times and travel many miles with our mother and father to come to see me . I will miss him very much, it is going to be hard not calling him at night to see how he is feeling. I love you baby.
