“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Psalm 23:1-6)
Life has many stages and provides many experiences for everyone. In moments of reflections, we can see how God weaves a tapestry that looks so beautiful as He works all things togetehr for good to those who love Him, to those who are called according to his purpose.
On Friday, the twenty-ninth day of June, nineteen hundred and thirty-four, a bouncing baby boy was born in New Waverly, Texas to the proud parents, James and Eadith Harris. They looked at him with a smile on their faces and chose the name of Sidney Marvin Harris.
Sidney attended school in New Waverly at the New Waverly School District. Once he graduated from high school, he followed in his older brother’s footsteps and joined the Armed Forces of the Army.
He united in holy matrimony to Mrs. Othella Harris and later Mrs. Willie Mae Harris. To the union of marriage to Mrs. Willie Mae, they welcomed a baby girl named Carol Re’nee.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Mr. James and Mrs. Eadith Harris; brother, James H. Harris; sisters, Helen Whitmire, Johnetta Thompson and Alberta Riley; sister-in-law, Leola Harris; and brother-in-law, Lester (L.C.) Whitmire Sr.
The memories of his life will be cherished by his daughter, Carol (Allen); other children, Marilyn, Rosina (Leon), Sandra, Leroy and William; sister-in-law, Callie Mae Sowell; special cousin, Jesse Alonza Clark; grandchildren, great grandchildren, great great grandson, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
“…and he shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.” (Jeremiah 30:10)
