Don Roberts

Who passed November 27, 2008

I have known Don Roberts for 40 years, and saw him virtually every day for 18 years. Long into the evenings we discussed a miriad of subjects, lay and divine. Although we did not often agree, yet I learned much from him.

On the afternoon of Don Robert's collapse, I went to visit him at the ICU. Because I have been gifted with the third eye, I saw the Angel of Death standing by his left shoulder.

I told Don Roberts "Don, you are about to begin your journey." But he was in denial, and insisted he would recover and go home soon. Because he was my Elder, I did not think it my place to argue.

Don Roberts was medivaced to Anchorage, and on the morning hours of Thanksgiving day, 2008, the Angel took him by the hand and led him through the veil, to begin his journey upon the Summerlands.

In that instant of Ecstasy, all his questions were answered, and the Truth was revealed to him.

The above was read at the Funeral Assembly for Don Roberts, 7th Day Adventist Church, Nome, Alaska
