    Dear Dorothy and Joy,
    It goes back some years now. Professor and pastor, your dad was a positive influence in my journey to Christ as my Savior. I remember how he said he replaced a Syl Apps poster for Christ in his heart as a young man. I will always remember your husband and dad as a humble man of God. Thank you, not only to him, but the Robertson family for making an eternal difference in my life.

  • Bonnie Triebwasser says:

    I can truly sympathize with you, Dorothy, and Joy since I have travelled this road. It is not easy but holding on to God will get you through almost anything. Hold On ! !

  • Maureen and Wally Weber says:

    We are so sorry to hear of Pastor Roberson’s passing. It is never easy saying good-bye to a loved one, but what a blessed hope we have that this is not forever. What a glorious day that will be when “God will wipe away every tear from [our] eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Rev 21:4). Our reunion with our loved ones is such a wonderful event to look forward to!

    In the meantime, may you feel the kindness, love and warmth of those who care for you. And may God wrap His arms of love around you as you face the coming days. …. Wally and Maureen Weber

  • Evelyn says:

    Just heard today, April 14, of Pastor Robertson’s passing and that I missed his service. It is with great memories that I remember you Dorothy and your husband from my time in Saskatoon.

  • Jean Leclerc says:

    I thank God for the awesome privilege of having been a student of pr. Allan Robertson.
    My condoleance to the family. I have been thinking of this wonderful man so many times.

  • Kenneth Anderson says:

    Pastor Robertson married Mary and me at Thanksgiving in 1977 in Vancouver and I remember some of what he said at the service – that when two people get married it’s like gluing two pieces of paper together – if you try to separate them it would involve tearing the paper. How right he was. Mary passed away on Labour Day, 2015, with me holding her hand.

    I loved Pastor Robertson’s sermons, which were uplifting and clear and practical. My empathy to Dorothy and Joy and all who loved Pastor Robertson.
