This morning I was awakened at 6AM from a friend saying, "Turn on KFI640! Jesus Christ is talking about Bob!" and sure enough, for the first 15 minutes, Bob was being rememebered by "Jesus Christ" who has a show every Sunday. Turns out, "Jesus" is a friend and student of Bob and Gretchen's! Bob told me he thought "His" show was a great idea, a great opportunity for evangelizing, apologetics, teaching, counseling. That show is the first time my friend has ever been open to apologetics and learning, (so don't anybody go nitpicking!) He's a loving, caring guy, and it's fascinating how the callers just melt when talking to "Him"--so open to hear, so ready for advice! But here it is, 6AM, and "Jesus" is talking about Bob!!!(Even the real one couldn't get me up that early!)
Then tonite, Dr.John Warwick Montgomery was interviewed on http://kfuo.org, and they talked about Bob. After complimenting Bob, he said something to the effect of "I have an entire list of folks I would much rather be gone than Bob! But I guess God's list is different!" I had to laugh, and knew Bob would've enjoyed it too!
It was nice seeing you all at the service...feeling everyone's love and support, knowing we were all hurting, yet joyous for Bob, sharing our pain and sharing our love. So many thoughts...thanks for this forum to share! Thanks too, to Mary, Karen, Paul for sharing their home and folks all these years with us...you've been so gracious! Bless you all! Love, Paula
