Bert Snelling – Special Tribute

This will never do him justice but we wanted to do just a small tribute to the work of Bert Snelling to show how he exemplified excellence in his craft, just as much as his life as a human being and a Christian. Even as much as naming his business Standing Firm Builders - he always stood firm in the hope he had that Jesus was Lord of his life and God's Promises always reign. We don't understand this loss here on Earth, but it truly is Heaven's gain. We salute the man, and the craftsman, that was Bert Snelling.

This video is of an extremely high end, very skill driven, custom carpentry project he did for us a while back. He set up his station and he went to work every day. He stayed focus and he worked with precision. He was creative in designing the hidden door system and he was practical in the methods and tools he used to complete it. He put in long hours and he did what it took to help elevate our company, and the project. He worked as if working for the Lord in everything he did. 

Again, this is never enough to show who he was, but I hope it's a small piece of helping his legacy live on. I'm so glad he impacted our world at Regal just for this moment, but through this work, he still helps us to this day by building something we can showcase for our life as a business. Thank you Bert and God Bless. Your work here is done - forever rest in peace my friend, in the loving arms of our Savior. #vbstrong #virginiabeachstrong

I’m so sorry for your loss. The lives of 16 people senselessly affected by this tragedy. May he rest in peace knowing he was loved and will be missed. His memory will live forever in the hearts of those who knew him and loved him.

Such a tragic and needless loss of innocent and, as this tribute shows, talented and amazing people. My prayers go out to all the victims’ family and friends, and thank you for this special tribute.

What a beautiful thing you have done sharing this short video. This man had a very rare and special talent given to him by God. I believe God called him home. It was a horrible senseless act that took him away from his family, friends and customers.

Whenever I have hard time dealing with something that just doesn’t make sense to me, I go to my Bible and find Prov.3 Verses 5 to 6. [5] Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. [6] In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. I hope this helps.
