Condolences for the family of “Robert C. Hager”

Condolence from Lowanda on October 12th, 2017 2:51 pm

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. God is our refuge and strength, He is our help that is readily found in our times of distress. Psalm 46:1. May the above words give you peace, knowing that the almighty God is with you at this difficult time.

Condolence from Greg Hager on October 17th, 2017 9:26 am

Unk was the best hunting and fishing companion anyone could ever ask for and he and Bill, my dad, got me interested in stamp collecting again. Some of my fondest memories include Uncle Bob and I will love and miss him forever. He was also one of the positive and faithful role models in my life who helped propel me to Seminary and Ordination. So I cross myself, send a Scout salute and a military salute in honor of Unk. Celebrate the Victory Banquet in eternity and I’ll see you in heaven.
