  to the great State of Texas as fast as they could and subsequently
  served this state with distinction and honor; and

  the Lone Star State their home, other citizens of these lesser
  states have instead distinguished themselves by using their
  professional talents in service to Texas' businesses and

  Hensell Harris Jr. has indeed served many Texas companies for
  decades, especially those in the construction and engineering

  has been the managing partner of Wasson, Sours and Harris, P.C.,

  career outside of Texas' expansive borders, Weller Hensell
  Harris Jr. has always had great affection for this state and is a
  true Texan in his heart; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the Senate of the State of Texas, 85th
