I've known Brother Tonie Robertson since i was nine years old when he became my pastor. I sat under his teaching and preaching. He was energetic, faithful and committed to God , to the church and to his family. He tirelessly visited those who were sick or missing services. When I was saved at age 11, Brother Robertson baptized me. Always encouraging, never judge mental. He lived what he preached. I love his family and spent lots of time with them when I was young. Right now he is where he preached about, with his grandson and with my Dad. How blessed my life was to have Brither Robertson and his family in it. I was so privileged to talk to him one more time last Saturday and he said we will talk again. I said to him I will see you again and talk to you again for sure. Praise God fir that hope and the blessed assurance.
