I need to clarify something about Bob McClane - or as he was called in my family "Bobby McClane."
Bob McClane did NOT commit suicide. He died of a heart attack in the VA hospital.
The only time suicide was associated with Bob's death was in the loud and nasty rant of Gary Hargrave who said it was suicide because of Bob's poor health habits. It was cruel and unnecessary and very wrong, especially if it misled anyone to think Bob committed suicide or that he was not committed to his kids.
Onion, this is yet another hearbreaking example of the cruelty of TLWF leaders Gary and Marilyn Hargrave. When Bob McClane died of a heart attack in the VA hospital, there was blame cast at Bob and others. Bob was blamed for not taking care of his health properly. This was emphasized so much that, as you said, some congregants erroneously believed that Bob had committed suicide. Gary may have even used that terminology when announcing his death. Bob's pastors were blamed for not realizing the severity of Bob's illness and for not notifying G&M of his impending death. (How dare someone like Bob McClane die unexpectedly?) Why would the pastors of Grace Chapel South Gate assume that the Apostolic Fathering Ministry wanted to be kept apprised of the health status of a local congregant? Because even as G&M left Bob hanging out to dry after his Kingdom Business went bankrupt, they still wanted to use him one last time, this time to "deliver a message from them to JRS on the other side". The man and his family were robbed of Bob's last ounce of dignity even in death. Sickening.
