    Terry, Willie, & Iris, our sincere condolences to you and your entire family. We are praying for God to continue to give you strength, comfort, and encourage your hearts as He carries you through this very painful and sorrowful time. Please know that I regret that I wasn’t able to be there for the “Celebration of Roberta’s life, and her Home-Going” physically, but I was with you in heart & spirit. We love you all and we will continue to lift you up in prayer, not just now, but in all the weeks, months, and years to come.
    Roberta was a wonderful person, sweet, kind, with a bright smile, and personality to match. She will certainly be missed and forever loved, and never forgotten, that’s for sure.
    Roberta sleep on and take your rest, you race has been run, and you ran it well, now it is finished.
