Brother Harrison was the epitome of a good and godly man. I was blessed that he baptized me and was an influential figure in my childhood.

Donna & family, my heart is so heavy after seeing news of Brother Harrison’s passing. I, like so many here who have left comments, have wonderful memories of him and the family at Parkview. He was a kind, soft spoken and very wise Pastor who was always there for us. I remember you fondly too and can still “see the faces” of your sweet children when they were little. God bless you and may you draw comfort from our Heavenly Father, your family and friends. 🙏🙏🙏
