So sorry to hear about Larry--I know Larry was a very good football player in Rockford -although he graduated from high school when I was in the sixth grade. I lost contact with him since.--.

I will always remember Uncle Larry as a kind and generous man, always willing to help someone and give them a chance when no one else would. When I heard about his passing this morning I was devastated, I went for a walk at a park with many gardens, there were a lot of people there gardening, Uncle Larry was always proud of his plants and gardens so I knew I went to the right place. When my father passed (his brother Richard Davis) he told me a story about how my dad would get on him about wasting the outer layer of an onion, I remember this because my dad got on me about it too. Since then I always though about Uncle Larry every time I can into an onion. Now it will not only be the onion that makes me tear up. Love you Uncle Larry, I will work extra hard on my gardens for you, perhaps I will start growing onions.
