If your going to write a book you should at least make sure surviving family names are correctly put in. Under Richard Adair grand children should say Mitchum not Mitchell and Its Tara, not Ford!

Sgt David C Harris is my father. Today is 28 years since he was senselessly and thoughtlessly killed by someone who has yet to come forth. It was tragic and I'm sure he never meant to change my and my family's lives forever - but he did. It hurts every day. I was five years old. My brother, David Jr, was 3...and my 24 year old mother was 9 months pregnant with my baby brother, Bill, who was born just weeks later with cerebral palsy caused from the extreme stress my mother was under during delivery. This book, along with many other memorials that have been dedicated along the way, have been therapeutic for me. They've given me a sense of pride in who my Daddy was and reminded me that he will never be forgotten and will instead be remembered as the wonderful man he was and for all his accomplishments. Most of us will not make the impact in our entire lives that he made in 24 years. I love you, Daddy, and David, Bill, and I miss you everyday. I wish you were here to know all seven of your amazing grandchildren. Your memory will live on forever and I am beyond proud to call you MY DADDY!
Thank you, Mr Wilbanks...thank you.
Amanda Leigh Harris
