I have just learned that our dear friend and brother, Bob Roberts, passed quietly into the presence of the Lord about an hour ago. I believe that his wife of 49 years, Marlene, and his oldest daughter, Roberta, were at his side. One of his wishes was that “Matthew, Mark, Luke and John” would come and receive him into glory. That apparently is what an old Sunday School teacher of his said happened to her as she was dying, so it is what Bob wanted too! I don’t know whether or not he got his wish, but I do know that he is now in the presence of his Savior!
We shall deeply miss Bob. For years he was the first face that people met when they came to Family Life Church. I know you will agree when I say that no one will ever take his place in our church. May we all have the love for Jesus that Bob did and an appreciation for forgiveness like Bob did.
As I learn details of when and where funeral services will be, I will let you know.
“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” (Ps 116:15 NIV)
