Dear Anderson family, How Nancy and I will miss seeing our Christian brother, Bob, sitting in the first seat in the last pew on Sunday morning. Bob always had a smile on his face and greeted all of us as if it were our first visit to Faith. Our deepest sympathy to the family on his passing. To Bob: enjoy the presence of our Saviour and the freedom of pain. Thank you for being such a great example of an earthly disciple, Bob. Nancy and Shep Shepler
