I met Bob and Millie in Citrus Springs FL in 2005 and we became friends right away. I will never forget how they stood by me and my husband Gary before he passed away in 2011. Bob gave Gary communion at the Nursing Home just a few days before he passed. It was a very powerful and anointed experience for all 4 of us. That is just one of the many things that Bob and Millie did for us and others. Thank God for this kind of friend and thank you Millie❤️🙏🙏
