Whenever I saw my uncle Lawrence from behind he always reminded me of a Silverback Gorilla with the overalls and how he would lean over as he walks. And one day I called him my silverback gorilla and he would just shake his head from side to side. We would kid around about if the time ever came and I needed anyone I would look for my silverback gorilla to be my rock to lean on. Uncle Lawrence you will always be missed and I will always love you. Your niece Angela Denney.
