This book details the loss of my son‭, ‬Robert Barry Roberson‭. ‬It begins with the day we got the news and the reaction of the family‭. ‬It continues with details of the funeral and the effect those few days had on his wife‭, ‬daughters‭, ‬me‭ (‬mother‭) ‬and his two sisters‭, ‬as well as his dad‭.‬
After the initial shock and the funeral‭, ‬the book continues with a discussion of his upbringing‭, ‬high school and college days‭, ‬and the many times our Lord intervened to spare him in his younger days‭. ‬It details his struggles‭, ‬being from a broken home‭. ‬It further details how God brought people and events into his life and through many miracles‭, ‬molded him into the great servant of God he became‭.‬
This book explains each step of my journey down a long trail of grief‭. ‬Many times‭, ‬through scripture‭, ‬and thoughts placed on my‭ ‬heart‭, ‬God brought comfort and a degree of understanding of how He perhaps perceives events‭. ‬For example‭, ‬God brought to mind that at least 10‭ ‬people accepted Christ at his funeral‭. ‬Had he not taken Barry‭, ‬they might have spent eternity in hell‭.‬
