    I met Mr. and Mrs. Savage about 17 years ago. They were the epitome of good hardworking southern people and a pleasure to know. After meeting Mr. Savage my daughters quickly became known as bright eyes and hootie. Time spent with Mr. Savage was knowledge gained. I never knew a man so intelligent who could explain things so simply. He always treated my girls and I with great respect and shared wisdom I will treasure for the rest of my life. My girls and I will terribly miss Mr. Savages love and support. I am not alone in saying I lost my best friend.

    Thinking of all the memories over the years, one of the earliest is when my brother’s called him Mr Magoo and he would call them meathead. Lol Spending half my childhood with the family Larry was like my other Dad. When I became an adult there was never a time that he didn’t meet me with a big grin and a hug. We carried on long conversations and the last time I seen him he told me stories of his childhood. I will miss those chats, but will always know that he influenced my life with his honor, strength, integrity and gentalness of a loving and caring man.
