    Dianne, please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during these difficult days. Heaven is rejoicing today. I can almost hear Bert singing with the angels around the throne.

    Dear Tippett family, My thoughts and prayers go out to you during this difficult time. I have always held Mr. and Mrs. Tippett in high regard and respected you tremendously. You certainly helped me while I was a student at FWBBC. Thank you for the wonderful example you were to all of us. May God continue to wrap His loving arms around you.

    I met Bert when he traveled with the FWBBC quartet. They spent a lot of the summer at the home of Bob and Joanne King. Bert took time to spend with me and I have never forgotten how kind he was to me. He has always been such an inspiration to me by his faithful life.

    I never knew Bro. Bert as well while I was at FWBBC as I do now. And for that I feel loss, because the last few years I have felt great gain from being associated with the Tippett family. And for what he did for my son while he was at FWBBC I am eternally grateful. Our loss is heaven’s gain. Miss Dianne, you are always welcome to come cook with us at camp. 2 Cor.1:3,4

    One cannot think of the Free Will Baptist Bible College and not think of Bert Tippett. His faithfulness to the ministry of the college was incredible and a worthy example for all of us to follow when God directs our steps. Only our Lord knows the impact of Bert’s life on the Free Will Baptist denomination and especially the college. I ask that God give His peace and comfort to Dianne, and all the rest of the family. May the memories each of you have of Bert bring a smile across your face and kindle a warm spot in your heart. God bless. Dale Seley
