In memory of my dad, Gordon Douglas Harrison, Leading Seaman in the Combined Operations of Her Majesty's Royal Navy.
Born Sept. 6, 1920 - Feb. 6, 2003.
Dad, you'll always be a hero to me. And like you always said: "old sailors never die, they just get a little dinghy!"
Thanks for being my dad, teaching me how to throw a ball like a boy, dancing with me around the dining room table, crying with me to the soundtrack of The Sound of Music, teaching me an appreciation of gospel and country music, instructing me in the ways of bluebirds, keeping my first car on the road and always being there when I needed a helping hand or a kick in the behind. You provided both with heartfelt love. I will always be your jewel box.
Soldier on dad, soldier on.
