My father, Harvey, with my mother, Jean Sharley Taylor, somewhere in Detroit, sometime in the 1950s.

Keep, O Lord, your household the Church in your steadfast faith and love, that through your grace we (and especially, this day, we fathers) may proclaim your truth with boldness, and minister your justice with compassion; for the sake of our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

— Book of Common Prayer
