Bob was the most loving person I ever knew.Even though his love could come out in some really strange ways, he always went out of his way to make other people feel loved. He could cuss and aggravate me to death and in the next instant talk about his faith in God. He had so much faith that everything was going to be okay, no matter what. I wish I could feel that certainty that God had everything under control, but I fall short most of the time.Bob wasn't afraid of dying. He knew he would be okay whether he was sick, or in the hospital, or broke or anything else that I worried myself sick over. He had a peace that had become so much stronger in the last month of his life. I think he fought to live as long as he did, more for me and the kids than he did for himself. He was afraid we wouldn't be able to handle life without him. I guess he finally was content that we were in safe places for the first time in a while and God said "Come on home, you have done all you can. You have spread the message I needed you to spread." I think he spread his message to an awful lot of people. So many people loved him and he truly loved them unconditionally. YOU'RE THE ONLY I LOVE!
In Loving Memory of Bob Lilly (1944-2002)
