I would just like to say that I know your family is hurting very bad but the man that hit Larry had not been drinking..I know that for a fact.I hope and pray that you will forgive him one day...the hurt will remain but forgiveness is a must so that you will heal.

Glad to know your are an donor. Are you aware your cousin Wayne has been on the Kidney Transplant list for YEARS? Just a thought, maybe you could be tested and possibly save his life. Then he'd have more time to be with his 2 sons. That would be an awesome gift to give.

3.0 sounds like drunk to me and I hope god does forgive him because what happened could have been avoided if he would have stayed off the damn road drinking. I myself have lost a son young this is the worst thing a parent could go thru Please pray for his family Their grief is unbearable

To the family I am so sorry that this has happened. I personally know the man that hit your son and I just wanted to say that he is not a monster. He would never intentionally hurt anyone especially "A CHILD", This man was on alot of medications for his mental disabilities and by far did he drink anything. I have spoken to the GSP and no alcohol was detected. He was not a drinker. I am saddened that my daughter went to school with your son and i am friends with the driver and his family. Both parties are devistated especially the Harrison Family. My heart goes out to you all and I hope that oneday this can all be resolved. Justice will Prevail !!!!

First of all if the man that hit him was on mental disabilities and on meds why was he behind the wheel? Also the 3.0 came from Larry's mother.

I can't answer why he was driving. I don't know what to say. Your are right he should not have been able to operate anything but that being said we all have to keep in mind that there are two sides to every story and I know that he would not have intenionally done this. I am not here to defend him nor say that what he has done was OK!! It's not by far and he will pay dearly just like the family of Larry has to hurt every waking moment of there lives now. I feel so bad for the mother and father I have a 15 yr old daughter and I could not imagine the pain!! In referance to the 3.0 I don't know why that has been evolving. I have never known him to be a drinker EVER !! I don't know if medications can cause you to have a reding like that.

In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.”

1st of all let me defend MY family, the Harrison family...thanks to all the concerned people who have posted on here... I have ALWAYS been there for my family no matter what and until I take my last breath I will continue to be there for them, but those of you who are taking up for him..saying what a good person he was...let me tell you if he was such a good person he should of had 1 brain cell left not to react the way he did and do what he done...So a little word of advice Larry is laid to rest now and is in heaven with he family members who have gone on before him and haveing a blast but DO NOT and I repeast DO NOT bash my family. Bottom line is this man can still breathe, wake up in the mornings, take a shower, talk etc...CAN LARRY???????? And your dang right IT WILL ALL COME OUT IN COURT!!!! Those of you saying you know him or taking up for him wasn't on the scence and the ones who where will tell another story those of you DONT KNOW!!!!!
The Harrison family ( my family ) I am sure you know who this is...the 1 & only black sheep hehehe love you guys.... huggsssss

Pissed Off be sure to keep the pressure up on the DA in Carroll County. From my personal experience with him as a police officer he is about as useless as screen doors on a submarine. He had some great folks in his office working for him is the only reason anything was completed. I want to see the facts come out too about this situation and the guilty party to receive the maximum punishment. As you said Larry is gone and there is no way to bring him back. But that being said his family deserves justice against the person charged. By the same token the accused has certain rights in the system so I will not make any comment since I am not privy to the facts of the case. I will only stand by my earlier statement that I want him to receive the maximum if convicted. That is unless that useless DA, Pete Skandalakis offers some crappy plea bargain in the case.

.08 is the legal point of "drunk." 3.0 is usually DEAD. I am mourning this child's passing, but don't add to untrue gossip.

He rode my bus, at one time..
And my mom had woke me up today and told me he had died. I texted a friend that lived around where he got hit, and they told me that his brain swelled and he was bleeding internally, and that he died the next day in the hospital. And that his cousin had a broken arm and was very upset.
If the guy was drunk or not drunk, does that matter right now? He hit Larry and Larrys dead..
RIP Larry.

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.
Just wanted to know if the person that did this is still in jail,or if he has been to court.
