    He was a fun teacher, he taught me in the 5th grade. I remember on my birthday he had me stand in my chair and sing Happy Birthday to myself … We always had some laughs in his class. Sorry so for your loss.

    I just saw this tonight and teared up while working a basketball game. I adored Mr. Brittain, he encouraged me when I was at one of my lowest points in life as a child. I needed more teachers like him in my life. He will be missed dearly! Y’all are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Laura

    Larry was a teacher all of his students liked, including my daughter Heather. I chose him to be one of her pallbearers because she admired him so much. I know you will all miss him dearly.
