To the Pittman Family: I am sorry to hear about Bob’s passing. It is never easy to deal with the death of a loved one no matter the circumstances. May the God of Comfort give you the strength to endure as you grieve Bob’s loss (2 Corinthians 1:3). It is times like this that make us look forward to the time when death will be done away with (Isaiah 25:8).
