    Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again! -Henry Scott-Holland

    To the Harris Family: We are saddened to hear of the loss of your husband/father/grandfather. May you find comfort in memories of the life he lived and the joy that he brought to your family. God bless.

    My love and prayers go out to the entire Harris family. May God give you peace and good memories of Floyd.

    Sorry for your loss. God will take care of you.

    I was devastated when I discovered that you had passed away...All the fun we had has just become "priceless"... Charles and Gloria, Tammy and Floyd... Your laughter was infectious... Now you have gained your Wings...Mom and Dad, Aunt Nettie await you... Forever in my heart...💯

    Floyd mentored me back in El Dorado, AR. In fact, he was more like a big brother. Because of him, I learned long-distance running, and later marathon running. He lives on within us.
