Patriarch Bob Schindler has passed away
I just received the sad new from Schindler family friend Bro. Paul O'Donnell that family patriarch Bob Schindler passed away early this morning in a FL hospital.
Bob was 72 years old and died of heart failure. His health had been deteriorating somewhat, but his death was still unexpected. He was admitted to the hospital only yesterday complaining of shortness of breath.
I'm so sad for this dear family, who has endured so much. Bro. Paul told me Bob was never quite the same after Terri was killed by denial of hydration and nutrition on March 31, 2005.
Bob's funeral is tentatively scheduled for Friday, September 4, in the Philadelphia area. Details to follow.
Please join me in praying for the Schindler family's comfort and peace at this tragic time. I know the family is very close, and Bob's death will devastate them.
As someone who was an eyewitness of the quality of the character of Bob Schindler in what had to be the darkest hours of his life, I can tell you that this was a man who steadily exhibited the precious fruit of God's Holy Spirit.
As his precious daughter was being slowly murdered; dehydrated to death by judicial decree; in the midst of his incredible suffering, he took the time every single day to minister to others. And not just his dear family, either. He gave of himself in ways I will never forget to complete strangers who had gathered from all over this land.
My prayers go heavenward for his wife, his son, and his remaining daughter, along with all who loved him, and were loved by him.
Heaven's gain, our great loss. At least for now, until the Day of the LORD arrives and we who have believed are all gathered together into His glorious Presence, to be with Him forever.
Lord be with the fanily
A truly sad day for America and a very dark point in our history.
May God Bless Mr. Schindler and the entire family. R.I.P.
I find the contrast between the world’s glorification today of Edward Kennedy, a man who helped bring about the political and “legal” culture that could torture Terri Schindler Schiavo, an innocent person, to death, and the true humility of Bob Schindler, to be one that is poignant and stark.
America should be ashamed, and on its collective knees begging God for mercy.
Dear Lord, I ask you to comfort Mrs. Schindler with YOUR peace that defies human understanding. Thank you for answering my prayer and blessing her in ways that will be above and beyond anything she can think or ask. In Jesus Name, I pray.
Your post got me thinking
If what had been done to Terri was done to a Gitmo American murdering terrorist, the looney left would have been yelling from every rooftop demanding an investigation, trial, and execution..
Supports my believe that leftist/democrats are either stupid or evil!!
Prayers up. Rest in peace. I hope you see Teri
They’re both. Evil IS stupid.
We can do things to honor their deaths.
We can start/continue to do the right things instead of the easiest.
We can start/continue talk to others about the right things, instead of being silent.
We can start/continue to speak out and hold our leaders accountable, instead of being afraid.
To truly honor these people and others like them....we need to see them as beacons of light, showing us the way to truth
...and help to save our Country in the process.
The murder of Terri vs. worlds glorification today of Edward Kennedy is Good vs. evil. Terri=where there is life, there is hope. Ted=pro abortion. Not hard to distinguish who was walking in the ways of the Lord - I came to give you life. Satan came to kill/rob/destroy.
Mr. Schindler is now receiving heaven’s reward which is everlasting. He fought the good fight (against evil), he finished his race and now it’s his time to reap what he sowed. For eternity, he will be w/Terri!! Never again to be touched by the filth/evil of this world.
This family surely deserves heaven’s best... I know the Lord is with them, both here on earth, and in heaven..
Thank you for a beautiful prayer to which I agree in Jesus Holy Name ,amen. And for giving us a picture of a true saint that walked among us. May the LORD bless and comfort your heart as well in Jesus Precious Name, amen.
Father and the daughter he loved so much and fought for so hard are together again. May blessings and comfort grace his family.
Bob Schindler - a hero and caring human being.
Granted that Bob was never quite the same but neither were we or this nation.
Pennsylvania freepers for Terri may want to attend Mr. Schindler's service.
I’m not fan of Teddy Kennedy but unless my recollection is incorrect, I believe he was on Terri’s side. The health care plans afloat are inexcusable and it is doubtful that Teddy Kennedy ever saw the current health care bills or knew how anti-person they are.
We are just starting to see the punishment God has wrought for this despicable act of cowardice on the part of the Bushes.
What were they thinking in not stopping this is beyond me, Obama has proved that the power of the presidency is practically limitless.
He was charming and kind.
