I did not know Bob well enough to call him a dear friend, but to me he will always be a great teacher. When I was first invited to work in ministry with one of his friends, Kurt Van Gorden, I felt somewhat inferior to complete the task. Kurt suggested that I attend one of Bob and Gretchen's classes. As a result, I was able to experience first hand the genius behind the man. He never grew tired of even the simplest question. He always treated me as though I was the most important person in the room. Though, Bob taught me much about apologetics, the most important thing I learned was to love those that oppose you.
Gretchen, I am truly sorry for your loss. I will pray for you and your family. Even though we as believers know that Bob is having a blast with Jesus, take time to grieve.
