Dear Michael Haywood Harris aka Dad,
What can I say about you? Just like I got something from Mom, I got a bit from you as well: writing; singing; reading; strong work ethic; and a sense to do right by people, even if they probably don’t deserve. Thanks for originally starting D&D Lawncare for me while I was unemployed. I wish I had as much time to help about when you’re out there under the burning sun by yourself. Sometimes I forget how old you are by how much you’re still able to do. It shows how I can maintain myself as I continue to age. Your wisdom and encouragement is always appreciated, even when I don’t ask for it. Christian life isn’t easy, but thank you for raising me up in the church. If I do have ever have kids hopefully I can raise them in the eyes of God as you have. Seeing you excited as you preach and talk about God encourages me to do the same. The word of God doesn’t have to be boring or feel like a college course you’re obligated to take. Many of my peers aren’t fortunate to have had their fathers present in their lives, but thank you for always being present in mine from the day I was born. No matter how old I get I’m never going to see you as peer. In my heart you will always be my Father. I thank my Heavenly Father for setting me here as one of your kids.
Your son, David Anthony Harris
