In Loving Memory of
William "Bill" Harrison Sr.
To my earthly father and Dad. Remembering you on your birth date Sept. 28th, 1921. Still so sorry you had such a terrible time in life, especially with 2 nervous breakdowns in combat in the Navy in WWII in the Pacific Theater and being immediately ordered to get back into the fight. Messed you up. And then other issues even before you joined. I also miss what we weren't able to have with you that I know you wanted, but couldn't figure out how to make happen. You were not a drunkard or a womanizer or a gambler or a thief or any of the other vices that so many have had. But you were angry and hostile and difficult to be around. I could say a lot more about all that but I'm not going to here. But you loved my two oldest daughters when you saw them and my wife Maria, the short time they were all with you, and you were exceptionally kind to them. You had a good work ethic, and tried to be ever honest and provide for your family as an EJ worker with such low pay, even at your own expense and sacrifice. We all have our own demons and skeletons, even if we weren't quite like you were. May God have mercy on US all.
Still Love You,
Your only Son Rev. William Harrison Jr.
