My dearest Roberta. So sorry for your lost. Your mom was a rock star! My deepest condolences to you and your family.

I didn't know Ida, but I worked with Bob at Ralph E. Samuel & Co. I admired Bob. I will always remember how ecstatic he was when Roberta was born, and how "over the moon" he was that Ida chose to name her Roberta, to honor her father Robert. Please accept my condolences.

To her family, my sincere condolence.. May our god of love and mercy bring comfort and peace to you. Psalms 9:9

In loving and cherished memories of a wonderful person who will be missed, may your beloved Rest In Peace and may aching hearts be comforted by prayers, the loving support of family and friends , along with God's promise to dry our tears, doing away with death and pain shortly.

I'm very sorry to hear of your precious loss. May your memories always bring smiles to your faces and comfort to your hearts. And may the God Of All Comfort help you through this difficult time. Isaiah 61:1,2. May her memory be a blessing.
