I had the privilege and pleasure on helping Robert with his philanthropy to Washington State University in honor of late History faculty member Winston B. Thorson and in support of scientific discovery. Robert introduced me to Spudnuts. We enjoyed wide-ranging conversations about history, politics, science, his family and his beloved cat, Kitty. He was such a kind and gentle man - a gentleman, in truth - that seeing him roar up in a huge pickup truck with lights and roll-bar on the top was a bit of a shock! He endured a number of health problems with equanimity and stoicism - maybe for too long, at times! I left WSU nearly seven years ago but we kept in touch from time to time and Robert was one of my favorite WSU donors. I will miss him.

My condolences to the family. I would love to share some bible scriptures that can bring you comfort at this time and a wonderful hope of seeing your love one again. Acts 24:15” There is going to be a resurrection “. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4” Comfort when loved ones die” Hebrews 2:15” Freedom from morbid fear of death” John 5:28,29” A real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones”. God is the Creator of life. The Bible calls Jehovah God “the source of life” (Psalms 36:9; Acts 17:24,25) The One who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. Jehovah hates death, he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again-Job 14:14,15.
Sincerely,
Liz Wall
