The Robertsons are a pretty big family, as you can see from Duck Dynasty. So when one of them needs support, everyone huddles together.

Many of the family members live on what’s called “Robertson Row,” a cul-de-sac where most of them live.
“Out of eight homes on our little street,” Missy writes in a recent blog post, “the four Robertson brothers live in four of them. The other four are filled with either extended family or good friends.”
One of the houses on Robertson Row is where Chrys and John Howard live — they’re Korie Robertson’s parents (Korie is married to Willie, the CEO of Duck Commander). John and Chrys have actually appeared in many Duck Dynasty episodes, being formally introduced in the final season — they were shown helping Willie restore some tennis courts at the summer camp they went to and now where their children go. In fact, Willie and Korie first met at this camp, Camp Ch-Yo-Ca.
And Chrys is actually the camp director at Camp Ch-Yo-Ca. But sadly, Chrys shared a post on Instagram that asked for support in light of a family member’s passing.

“This past week one of my cousins lost his battle with cancer and gained his heavenly reward,” she captioned the photo.
She said her cousin had been listening to a sermon on his computer, with his eyes closed, focusing on the message. And that’s when he took his final breaths.
“Let’s all just slow it down a bit and write down what we’ve learned about God,” Chrys continues. “Then tell someone else. Thank you, Glenn Durham, for fearlessly doing that your whole life.”
Glenn was one of the family. Let’s all send him, Chrys and John, and the whole Robertson crew our thoughts and prayers.
Monday Hug: This past week one of my cousins lost his battle with cancer and gained his heavenly reward. He was a devoted servant of God who spend his adult years preaching the gospel. His sister shared that on his death bed while listening to a sermon on the computer he, with eyes closed, gently motioned for a pen. With pen in hand, he slowly moved it around as if he were taking notes. You see, up until he took his last breathe, he was learning about God and thinking of sharing that knowledge with others. What a precious example for all of us. Let’s all just slow it down a bit and write down what we’ve learned about God. Then tell someone else. Thank you, Glenn Durham, for fearlessly doing that your whole life. Hugs, Chrys (2-mama) photo cred to his son @bwdurham @a.mom.thing
