Godspeed Rob Rice, Godspeed


Easter Cross at Redeemer

Easter Cross at Redeemer

Matt Scott asked us at Rob’s funeral to think of one word to describe him. My word is brother. Stacey agreed to share him with me (since I only had an annoying younger brother) when we were about 12. And he has been that and more.

Rob loved his family, biological and otherwise. He was always there when you needed him. I imagine him sitting around a kitchen table with Verlon, Faye and Stacey and they are eating tomato gravy and biscuits. It will be a happy day when I can join them again. And I promise I won’t scrape my fork on the plate.

Thanks to all who wrote tributes. See page A5.
