I'd like to offer my sincere condolences to the Passantino family. It is such a bitter-sweet time. Sweet, because we are secure in the knowledge that our brother Bob has gone home to be with the Lord and in His presence there is fullness of joy. Bitter, because we will miss the fellowship and great gifts he shared with fellow believers.
Although I didn't know Bob or his family, I would occasionally hear him and his wife on the Bible Answerman Show. I was always impressed with their knowledge of scripture and how they could masterfully expound the word of God. I was totally SHOCKED to learn today, as I tuned in, that Bob passed away. Despite not knowing him, I couldn't help but be filled with emotion.
I pray that the Lord will richly bless the family at this hour of transition. As well, in time the memories of him will become a source of comfort and strength. Albeit trite, but true...earth has no sorrow that heaven can't heal. Be encouraged in knowing that others are sharing this time with you.
