I miss Bob. He was a good friend. When he told me about his heart condition. He was confident that it was not something to worry about. He had absolute assurance that regardless of what happened, God would be with him. I am thankful to God that Bob was there to help me. I met Bob at Walter Martin's Bible study. Walter used to take questions before he began. You had to write the question down and wait for his response at the beginning of the study. There was no dialogue. Except those times I followed Dr. Martin out to his car. On the contrary, Bob was seldom too busy to talk to me. We had many long conversations. Whether the subject was apologetics, theology, philosophy, politics, heresy, current events or child rearing. Bob was always enthusiastic and insightful as helped me think through the issues. God, who is going to take his place? There is no one like him.
I pray God that you would reward Bob according to your perfect will. And Father, please pour out your love on the Passantino family and friends. Just as Jesus wept moments before he raised Lazurus from the dead. Let our sorrow be turned to joy as we look to our blessed hope, eternal life with Christ Jesus our Lord. May those who have not opened their hearts to our Savior see the love of Christ and be moved to repentance.
