Dear Jan, my love and prayers come your way as Bob has gone to be with the Lord. I thank God for knowing you for 53 years. Your bridesmaid Ruby M. I still remember your wedding day and will always think of you on 27 February each year.

Dear Jan and family, My deepest love and sympathy to you all at this time of sadness. Praying you will know God's loving arms around each one of you supporting and upholding you. I'm so glad we got to know you both and I will continue to remember you before the Lord as I have found this past year since Laurie went to be with the Lord a time of change but also a time to move into a different area of service. God's blessing on you all. Christian love Fran Shute

Dear Jan and family, Our sympathies for the loss of a wonderful man who touched so many lives with the Gospel and Grace of our Lord. I'll always remember Bob as a great man of faith, a devoted husband who adored his family and a man who set a high standard of honor and service to our Lord. It was always such an honor to have the Bagleys' in our home when they visited West Church during our mission conferences. While extremely humble I knew I was in the presence of "giants in our faith" ! Bob sense of humor will always bring a smile to my face, he was one of God's special ambassadors. We can only regret we are not in Australia to pay our respects to you Jan and the family for a man that touched our lives. Our deepest sympathies to the family. Love in Christ; Al & Marianne

Dear Jan and family, we are so sorry to hear of Bob's passing, so we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God and we give thanks for the wonderful man he is and was, and the impact he had on all of our lives. With love

What a blessing to have known Bob and you. We are rejoicing that Bob is home with Jesus, but we are mourning with the family left behind. May the God of all comfort be with you.

Thanking the Lord for your work and ministry in the Philippines. Blessing and grace to all the family.

We want to send our condolences to you. It is wonderful to know that Bob is now rejoicing with his Saviour and free of pain. May God be your joy and comfort. May our Good Shepherd carry you in his arms. We send our love. Andrew and Cathy

Our deepest thoughts of love to you Jan and you whole family, on the passing of your dear husband our faithful friend and tutor. Praise God that He is now safe in His glorious presence. Love, Trevor & Estelle, Amanda, Michael

Oh, the memories that are flooding my mind right now of all our times together! I am thinking of you, Jan, so much, and praying for you during this time. And I wish I could be there with you...but know that I am in thoughts and prayers. Sending much love from Arizona!

Dear Deb & Paul Jubub and Jan What a heritage you have inherited as when Paul came to your home so long ago an unbeliever but now saved by the Grace of God and continuing Mr. Bagley's Mission in the Philippines. Many saved souls will one day meet Mr. Bagley in heaven. "Safely Home" I am home in Heaven, dear ones; All so happy ,al's so bright! There's perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light. All the pain and grief are over,every restless tossing passed; Safely home in Heaven at last. Did you wonder I so calmly trod the Valley of the shade? Oh1 but Jesus' love illumined every dark and fearful glade. And He came Himself to meet me in the way so hard to tread; And with Jesus' arm to lean on could I have one doubt or dread? Then you must not grieve so sorely,for I love you dearly still; Try to look beyond earth's shadows,pray to trust our Father's will. There is work still waiting for you, so you must not idle stand; Do your work while life remaineth; you shall rest in Jesus' hand When that work is all completed,He will gently call you home; Oh! the rapture of the meeting! Oh! the joy to see you come! By Harry VanderArk I trust that this poem called "Safely Home" will be of comfort to you all

This is Alfred and Sudie Cole's daughter. I am lifting you and your family up in my thoughts and prayers. So sorry for your loss. What a joy to know he is with our Lord.

Hi Paul, Deb, Bobby, Jennifer, Jan and family. Thinking of you at this time, sending you Love and praying for you. In reflection of Bob - I am thankful for the part he has played in my life. Such long talks about a walk with the Lord and his teaching on What is the Gospel was inspiring to say the least. Such a man of conviction and fervor for Christ and His work of the gospel. For Me to Live is Christ and to Die is Gain is a verse I heard him quote many times and now he is in His Saviours presence forever. He will never be forgotton. Sorry we cannot be with you on the day to celebrate his life. Much love to you all from Craig and Neri.

Many precious memories of bygone years. Although we didn't agree on some things we were able to see past the differences and forge a strong relationship. Bob was a true warrior and contender for the faith even in the midst of great personal sacrifice, pain, danger, and trial. He loves the Lord and His Word and so bore the cross with dignity and grace. With much love. Brother

Janice and Family, It was great to catch with both you and Bob last November I (Ray) have great memories of working with Bob at Plumpton while I was together on leadership for just 15 months. We all went through some trying times together. I will always remember the way Bob conducted himself - A gracious humble servant who wanted above all else to see the Lords work continue. We pray that God will richly bless you all -Bob is now at rest and at peace and WE WILL MEET AGAIN every blessing. Ray and Else Cousins

Bob was a man for whom I had immense respect. We always had a good time together whenever we connected. He was a man of integrity. Janice and I wish to extend our sincere condolences to all the family.

Truly a sad day for us all, but we know there is much rejoicing in Heaven. Bob (and Jan) you have always been such a godly example to us, of true servant hood, of commitment, of love and sacrifice. You helped us so much in our early days with NTM, with our marriage, with raising our children, with trusting God for all things at all times. Our prayers are with the family as you grieve the loss of a husband, father and grandfather. With much love, Tony and Maria Verlaan Isaiah 41:9-10 9 You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, And called from its farthest regions, And said to you, ‘You are My servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away: 10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Hi Jan and Family: We thank the Lord for having gotten to know your family in the 80's, beginning a friendship which will last to Heaven. We pray for comfort and peace for you all, knowing how hard it is to lose your loved one. Sending our love, Herbie and Kerry

My love and prayers are going out to you, dear Jan and your loved ones. Not having our beloved one standing beside us now, after so many years (for us it was 60) of not only living together, but working together, it is a huge adjustment. When people ask how I am doing, I can honestly say I am AMAZED at God's AMAZING Grace! May you also feel His comforting, loving arms surrounding you, night and day. A verse Marvin and I were memorizing together those last days continues to lighten my heart. "I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you." Isaiah 41:13

Dear Jan, What a beloved Savior and LORD we serve! You and Bob are children of God who have opened our eyes in so many ways as to how to more intimately see who our great God is, the indescribable love that He has for us as His children through the cross, how to remain faithful to Him in any and every situation, how to live a life that is pleasing to the LORD. Now, your precious husband has been given the prize that he has so longed be in the very presence of his God and Savior, worshipping Him with all that he is for all eternity. There is not one instance that I can remember when you both have not had your eyes firmly fixed upon your Lord. Every letter, every conversation, every communication--eyes and heart and soul and mind--always firmly fixed upon our Savior, always speaking the truth in love, always pointing others to our great God, always encouraging others to seek out the LORD's heart on a matter, always living life as an example of how to walk with the LORD through difficult and challenging circumstances, always pointing the eyes of our hearts to Jesus and showing us how to give glory to God. Jan, please receive our hearts of love for your and your family. We are standing with you in prayer. We love and miss you both. May you and your family be upheld by His everlasting arms. In His love from whom we derive our hope, peace and strength, Karen, Brad and Kathryn Smith

Dear Jan How my heart aches for you and your precious family at this time of great loss. Bob was an inspiration to all who knew him. His love and dedication to our precious Saviour has helped many. What a legacy he leaves for us as we continue on our journey to the heavenly home we have been promised if we love and serve our Saviour . God bless you all and fill you with His peace.

Dear Jan, Deb, Paul, Robert Bagley, Jennifer Giuliani and all the family circle My love, prayers and a big hug coming your way. So sorry for your great loss but rejoicing that Bob is with our Saviour who he faithfully served and loved. I so appreciated Bob and the great influence he had in my life and walk with my Lord. I will miss him but so so glad we will see each other again. Love Deb

So thankful for Bobs Life. Happy that Bob is out of Pain. Praying for Jan and the family who will miss him for a while. Faithful to His Lord, By Gods grace I will join you in song day. John

Praying the funeral service will be a blessed time for each of you, and all that can attend, as you remember and give thanks to God for the servant heart and life of Bob. I still remember Bob officiating at our wedding service almost 32 years ago... part of his message that day centred around 'Redeeming the time'... a message I often enjoyed him sharing throughout our training days also. Phil and I both hold Bob in high esteem and are so grateful for his life, testimony and his teaching, which always encouraged us to press on in faith.

Anhemek mikayo, Bagley Family. Ag mi liliwanen hi Uncle Bob. Hi Apo Diyoh i mangipapigsa tan onliwliwan hi-gayon hayan timpon linggayoh.

Day by day, and with each passing moment, Strength I find to meet my trials here; Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment, I’ve no cause for worry or for fear. He, whose heart is kind beyond all measure, Gives unto each day what He deems best, Lovingly its part of pain and pleasure, Mingling toil with peace and rest. Love and prayers Heather & ( Gordon)

Dear Jan And Family, We are saddened by the news of Bob's passing, but rejoice with you that he is now with our Saviour. What an inspiration you both are - your faithfulness and commitment. We will always remember and cherish the times that we spent with you and Bob. Love from Ken & Christel

Dear Janice and Family, We were so sorry to learn about Bob's passing and sorry, too, for the sadness you must have felt as you saw his health declining over time. May you all find comfort in the assurance that Bob is with our Lord now, rejoicing in the One he loved so much and may you find comfort in knowing that you will see him again someday.

Bob stayed at our house in Marblehead, Massachusetts, for perhaps a couple of weeks many years ago, giving me a chance to learn from the most godly man I have ever known. My sympathies to Jan and all of Bob's family.

Jan, I'm so sorry for your lose but it is victory for Bob. We will all miss him but we would not want to keep him here. He is rejoicing with our Lord and Savior now. Thank you for all the times of support you and your family have been to me while I was working with you there in the PI. My prayers will be with you all.
