  1. So sorry to hear of Robbie’s passing. But happy that she magnified our Savior all of her life. ” I loved Robbie and Richard very much. Richard and my Dad were great friends. Fishing buddies and both worked for the greatest leader of all time, Jesus Christ. Scripture tells us, “Blessed are those that die in the Lord”. Robbie did. And we can see them again if we live for Christ.

  2. Richard and Robbie were great mentors to me. The 4 years I worked as youth minister under Richard’s guidance were invaluable to me. I miss them both and will always be grateful for their friendship and guidance. – Bud Ross
