A Legacy...

In a day and age of electronics...he took the time to hand write letters of legacy...

In a day of hustle and bustle...he took time to invest in young men...most of them he never met...

In a day of self-centeredness...he was selfless...
In a day of serving self...he served Christ...

In a day of slang language...he spoke eloquently of things of God...

And at the end of the day...he left a legacy. I can only write of a small part of it-the part that I saw unfold and flourish in my own home.
I saw the investment he made in a young man (my son) make a difference in his life...
I saw him give godly challenges and get results...
I saw him sacrifice his time and be faithful-even though he was a busy husband and father...
I saw not only a young man poring over his letters, but the adults doing it too. All of us gleaning from his wisdom...
I saw a reflection of Christ...

His name? Mr. Bob Schultz. His legacy? Eternal.

My son Brad's beloved mentor, Mr. Bob Schultz died June 13, 2008. We grieve his loss, but look forward to the day we finally meet in heaven -face to face.

You too can benefit from some of the awesome wisdom of Mr. Schultz. Christianbook.com carries all three of his books written for boys. They are life changing books!

Marci told me about how he used to correspond with your son. That is wonderful! Thanks for this post. The painting is really nice, too. Who did it?
