Larry Lawrence, father of two girls, was a “sweet and giving man” to everyone he encountered, according to the woman he was planning to marry.
“He always helped me,” said Chasity Williams, Lawrence’s fiancée. “Our schedules were based off of each other. When I worked, he stayed with our kids. He was always so sweet.”
Lawrence and Williams had two daughters together – a 2-year-old and an 11-month-old. His family is what kept him going, according to Marisha Cotton, Lawrence’s cousin.
“He always wanted to make sure his family was safe,” Cotton said. “That was more important than anything to him. He was always a family person.”
