A man who kept his promises
In 1990 Robertson McQuilkin resigned his post as president of Columbia Bible College and Graduate School, in order to care for his beloved wife Muriel, who stopped recognizing him in 1993 and went to be with the Lord in 2003 at the age of 81.
He wrote some articles about caring for his wife for the 25 years that she was suffering from Alzheimer's Diesease, which are linked to in this interview which Stan Guthrie conducted shortly after her death.
I like the story of him a hanging a flag in his front garden on the days when Muriel was smiling, to let friends know she was having a good day, which he was enjoying, too.
And I like his comment that she made many sacrifices over the forty years of his student days and working life, which he was now only partially repaying.
I'm sorry that the person who put the video up on Youtube did not do him the honour of spelling his name correctly.
