Even though I have only known this gentlemen for three years he has managed to touch our lives as well. A year or two ago, he came to church with a brand-new leather coat for Brian. I love this coat it looks like an old bombers jacket and Brian wears it on Sundays and when we go out. It makes me think about that scripture that says; if we have two coats and we see our brother in need we are to give it to him (very loose translation by me). He embodied the meaning of this scripture in such a real way. It makes me smile to think about it.
Blessed is the man who walks NOT in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord and in His law he meditates day and night He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water. That brings forth it's fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither, and Whatever he does shall prosper. Bob you truly lived this out, you love God, and others. You served with a joyful heart and lived a long vibrant life. You are the kind of man that I pray my sons become. Praise Jesus that death does not have the final say in our lives.
