First, my profound condolences to you and your family. Last night was the first time I was able to tune into the Bible Answer Man broadcast and was shocked.
There's no reason for you to remember me. Several years ago I took my step son and some of his friends to the Cornerstone Fesitival in mid-state Illinois. For me, the only ray of light in going was that you and Bob were going to be there teaching a seminar. I'd heard of you guys on BAM and couldn't wait. You didn't let me down. What a team, I thought. Obviously, both of you were strong willed yet gave each other the platform with such grace and style as you volleyed from point to point.
After one of the seminars I cornered Bob. I wanted to know how you two did it. To be able to have such a wealth of knowledge and experience. He quickly invited me to your Wednesday night gathering. Being from Indiana that was quite impossible but I'd always thought that when circumstances made it possible I would drop in on you guys. I'm sorry I never had the chance.
He talked with me, a complete stranger, with such energy and conviction I thought, I wanna be like this guy. I was deeply impressed. Just wanted you to know how you've touched others, even in such brief passing.
Gretchen, thanks for all that you two did together--and for what I'm sure you will do in the future. Our prayers are with you.
