I will always remember Bob as a man who shared his bounty of ideas with rapid fire delivery and a twinkle in his eye. Bob loved people deeply, and he certainly did share his time generously with many. I remember visiting with Bob and some of the folks from his discussion group, laughing (it was practically a requirement to laugh when Bob was around)and talking into the wee hours of the morning at a coffeehouse in Costa Mesa. Or the time at Cornerstone when we talked about the arguments for and against Purgatory of all things, until about 3 AM. Nobody else on the planet could keep me awake at three in the afternoon, let alone until three in the morning, talking about Purgatory. Bob could.
Not only did he give brilliant answers, he asked brilliant questions and listened brilliantly. The love of God flowed through every discussion I ever had with him. He was truly a servant of Christ, a good man, and a loving husband and father. To me, he was a good friend, and I will miss him. I take comfort in the fact that Bob spent his life in a passionate discussions about Truth, and now in his resurrected state, he knows Truth, face to face.
Gretchen, my heart goes out to you and your family as you grieve.
