Bob and Gretchen have been a tremendous encouragement to me personally and professionally over the years. I never walked away from their home, a restaurant where we shared a meal, or a phone conversation without renewed vigor for ministry. News of Bob's passing left me stricken with grief.
Bob was very well read and possessed a mind like a steel trap, yet he never made those around him feel inferior. He was always generous with his time and gentle with his tongue. His life embodied the principle of 1 Peter 3:15-16.
I will miss Bob's coarse laugh and quick wit. I'll miss his animated and energetic delivery. But most of all, I'll miss a godly role model and trusted friend.
Gretchen, as you carry on the work you once shared with Bob, please know that you are in my prayers. I trust that our great God and savior, Jesus Christ, will encourage, empower, and energize you with his presence. May he fill you with his peace and surround you with his love as you mourn the loss of Bob and celebrate his life--both old and new.
