I was saddened to hear of the passing of Reverend Robertson. I was a young teen when he pastored First Church of the Nazarene in Jonesboro, AR. His interest in young people was evident in those days. His influence continued to be felt in my life as I moved through the high school years. I thank God for people like him who have lived their lives in faithful obedience. My prayers go out to the family. May God's comfort and blessing be made available in abundance to each of you.
