Becky, thank you so much for adding your comments to our page. I know that I am not the only one who turns to this page over and over again to receive new comfort and inspiration as the days go by.
Bob was so happy that you and Trent had become a part of our Prince of Peace "family," and was eager to see how God was going to blend his gifts to you and to POP in new ways over time. Bob had a genuine care and concern for the young people of our congregation and often prayed that God would bring us someone who could minister specifically to them. Thank you and Trent for answering God's call and giving your hearts and family to God's work at POP.
: I had only met Bob two months before he was taken home to be with our Lord, yet my life has been deeply impacted by Bob. Every interaction and conversation I had with Bob pointed to the cross. The way Bob talked the walk was consistent with the way he walked the talk. I am sure I am not the only one who was both convicted and motivated by Bob's example. I got to know Bob through catching glimpses of his life. If you can call them glimpses, which by definition are brief- I'm not sure that "brief" is a word associated with Bob. :) Bob treated people as if he had eternity to spend with them... because he did want to spend eternity with them. All of these glimpses of Bob create one of the clearest reflections of Jesus Christ that I have seen. I loved Bob because I love Jesus and there was so much of Jesus in Bob to love. To the Passentino family-my heart goes out to you in ways that words cannot. You are in my prayers daily.
: With deepest respect and sympathies,
