Hi there, Dr. Bob here.
The older we get, I suppose, the more we think of the shortness of life. When I was nine years old, I was fortunate (or unfortunate) to be forced to think of how short life is, when my father died.
My dear wife found some interesting obituaries in last week’s Tampa Bay Times, which I would like to share with you. The obits communicate great testimonies to faith in Christ.
