Very saddened to hear of Bob's passing. He brought so much of his faith into the lives of others. It was a privilege to be his childhood friend. He now is safely Home. He will be missed.
So glad that I got to meet Mary, the love of Bob's life. May the memories they shared be such a comfort for a life well lived. He so loved his children and family. He shared these things with me at a class reunion.

What comes to mind is from Oswald Chambers Utmost for His Highest Nov 11.
"When God gives you a cup that is sweet, drink it with grace, but when it is bitter, drink it in communion with Him".

Blessings and honor to Jesus and to His resurrection promises.
