Book Dedicated to Bob


Michelle D. Gibson, a graduate of Baylor in church music, dedicated her new book, To Hymn We Sing, to Bob and the late Rev. Preston W. Springfield (Waco pastor and her grandfather).


The dedication reads, "Dedicated to Preston W. Springfield, who taught me about faith, and Robert H. Young, who put my faith to music."
