We were told that the person that hit them left, rode back by to look, then went home.

i am larrys oldest sister, this has been so very hard for us all. we thank those of you out there who have been praying for us. as tragic and senseless as my brothers death was in donating his organs he has already saved 4 peoples lives. the man that hit them is in jail facing at least 7 charges (they cant throw enough at him) we will be holding a candlelight vigil at the spot he was hit on holly dr. in carrollton on tuesday the 15 at 7 for anyone that would like to come.

I am a family member of the man that accidentally hit Larry.I cannot begin to tell you how sorry we are for your loss.we have shed many many tears for you and your family.While we do not by no means condone the actions he did I would like to say he is no monster.He has children who will never have their father in their life again.He is just beside himself that he did this.It was an accident and we are all very sorry.He did not leave because he was running his girlfriend is a nurse and he was panicking and went to get her,without even thinking rationally.She could not come because she is disabled.With all due respect it is a tragedy for both families.we are deeply sorry and hope someway somehow y'all find it in your hearts to forgive him.

Organ donations are a wonderful thing and that is why I am one. So in a way Larry actually continues to live among us though not in the body he was born with.

The Family of Dwayne Harrison suffered the tragic loss of their son Larry this past weekend in a hit in run accident. Added to the over whelming grief they are now forced to endure, is the added burden of his burial expenses. Monetary donations of any size would be a welcome relief for his family in their hour of extreme grief.
Donation can be made at Bank of North Georgia to the Larry Harrison Funeral Fund.

to the family of the man who KILLED my brother, he walked away. i am sorry for his children that their daddy decided to drive after drinking. they can still see their father in jail and my mother and father will never see their 16 year old son again. they will never know the joy of seeing him have children, or even graduate from high school. my brother was a baby just starting out in life and he took it. and for the record, no cpr was done. the man ran, my husband and a few other neighbors were with my brother. his brain was deprived of oxygen, this is from the doctors. but thank you again to all of those who have kept us in your thoughts and prayers this has meant the world to us.
