Thank you so much , Patty.. we feel an emptyiness right now without him here.. .. Toward the end of his life you could see how the Lord really softened his heart.. There was a transformation in him that was so nice to see. The night before he died, I was holding him and told him how if we loved him, how much more Jesus loves him... and that he should not be afraid to go to Jesus.. as He won't turn him away. He died peacefully at home. My sister was there until 3:00 am in the morning holding his hand. My mother was at his side non stop. The hospice nurse (Sacred Heart) was just awesome ... staying until 2:30 am with us.

Marlene and family - we are so sad to hear of Bobby's passing. It is many years since we have seen you all, but you are in our thoughts and prayers and may God give you His love and peace at this difficult time of loss. We are retired in California now, so it is too far for us to travel, but we are with you in our thoughts.
Emil and Cosie

Dear Lisa my sister in Christ. Even though we have not met here on earth but have known you through your YouTube tunnel ( me as Redeemed by Jesus Christ) we will meet in heaven.

I am very sorry about your dad. One thing for sure is he is now part of and one of the great cloud of witnesses cheering you on. He will definitely be one of your heavenly intercessors praying for you. You will certainly see him again, and as he has gone ahead of you, when you get to heaven he will take you on a tour of heaven showing you and You mum all the nice places. His soul is resting in perfect peace.

Everyone, there is a You Tube video made for my Dad , Robert Augustine, from his daughter..and how the Lord uses our sufferings to open our hearts to Him.. how the Lord worked in my father's heart through what he endured in the end. It's not a long video.
