Bobby was my "go to" person for a number of summers when he worked for Radford University Conference Services. His dedication, willingness to help in any way he could, and his amazing spirit inspired friendships out of work relationships. I know that I am a better person for having known Bobby. My deepest condolences to Bobby's family and friends.

  I am shocked to hear of this and so sorry for your loss. I worked with Bobby at South River quite a few years ago. He was a great person, with a loving wonderful personality. We had great times down there, ones that will never be forgotten. This is a tragic loss but heaven has a new angel now! May God be with the Harris family & friends to comfort you during this difficult time!

O Lord of Life, Where'er They Be

- Lyrics by
Frederick L. Hosmer, 1888; Music by Melchior Vulpius (circa 1560-1615)

O Lord of life, where’er they be,
Safe in Thine own eternity,
Our dead are living unto Thee:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

All souls are Thine, and here or there
They rest within Thy sheltering care;
One providence alike they share:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thy Word is true, Thy ways are just;
Above the requiem, “Dust to dust,”
Shall rise our psalm of grateful trust:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

O happy they in God who rest,
No more by fear and doubt oppressed,
Living or dying, they are blest:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
