  2. I’m so sorry. Bob was always special to me. I remember dancing with him at the ScentSations conventions. He was such a good dancer and was so much fun to be around. I’m praying for your family. I pray your faith sustains you as you deal with his passing from this life. ?

  3. My condolences to the entire family. Mr. Harris is very close to my own father’s age (Mar ’32). My prayers are being said for you all. I know he will be very missed.

  4. What a kind and patient husband to a “dance family.” It takes a rare man to do as many dance recitals as the dance wife and daughters can dream up. I remember how handsome he was…so tall and straight. You chose a great picture of him on this day. I know the time ahead will be sad but take heart that is is whole in His Father’s loving embrace.
