Lawrence and his wife had two beautiful daughters Marianna and Shaelanna.  They have a 3rd daughter Ausha who is actually his cousin–Lawrence stepped in as dad and granddad when she was in high school.  He also has three granddaughters: Audrey (8) and Maddy (4) from Marianna and Zoe (10) from Ausha.
