Just read of Dr Webb's passing. I remember how he and Theron joyfully included music as part of their message when I heard them in the 1970's. Now as a retired science teacher, I'm still teaching the song ,"I'm No Kin to the Monkey" whenever I teach the Genesis story of Creation. To God be the glory !

Our deepest sympathy goes to the Webb family. We rejoice that he is in the presence of the Lord that is the greatest day in a Christians Life but we who are left grieve for the Loss. I thought everyone new Hal. I grew up with him coming to our church Tabernacle Baptist in Wmspt.Pa If they did not know Him that was their loss. You all are in our Prayer.
Ps I bet he and my dad are already talking together..

Certainly our hearts grieve over our dear Brother Hal's departure from this life - BUT how we rejoice that he is in the presence of the Lord he served so faithfully! We have such fond memories - first when we served in Youth for Christ - and Hal & Theron were in charge of the music/choir at the Eastern Regional YFC Conference at Ocean City, NJ. -Then how blessed we've been the many times the team ministered in the 3 churches we pastored over the past 45 years. Our sons were always delighted when Hal and Theron came to spend a week and the times they spent with us in our home.

We express our heartfelt sympathy to Nell Sue and the whole family and trust that even in the Memorial Service some will come to know the Lord - and others dedicate themselves to carry on the work of the ministry.

My beliefs are not the same as I was taught but I do believe Dr Webb or Grandpa as he let me call him was a shining light in a dark hypocritical world. I hope God wraps His arms around Mrs Webb during her time of sorrow. His team is one good memory I have of my childhood.

My heart was saddened by the news that Hal had been called HOME. I've known Hal over many, many years and have been blessed by his testimony and messages. We are thankful that God will comfort our hearts in these difficult days.

I give thanks to God for Dr. Webb's testimony of steadfastness in the work of the Lord. I remember reading his name and works YEARS ago when I was first in Bible School. To read of his homegoing reminds me that it is worth it all for God's glory. Yet it is also a vivid testimony that our work does have a limited time here on earth (Heb. 9:22). Thank you for that reminder, too, to continue steadfast (1 Cor. 15:58) until God sees fit to call us Home to glory.
May our Savior Himself be your comfort in your time of sorrow. And may Dr. Webb's vision of ministry continue through you and your work where God has wisely planted each of you his family, for God's glory.
