Not sure what to say?

Roberta and my dad were high school sweethearts. I didn't know their birthdays were a week apart. I know they were together at C.S.U. (or C.U.) when they heard about the attack on Pearl Harbor on the radio.
I'll never forget her coming over to our house for dinner (around 1971) and bringing me two beautiful exotic South American Side Necked turtles. This instantly doubled the population of my turtle aquarium. My mom was not jealous of my dad's ex-girlfriend, so I named my two new...

I grew up on Flower Street in Arvada about a block north of the Logans. I think Monty was a year younger than me (I graduated from Arvada High School in '68).

Roberta and my dad were North high school sweethearts. Although they married others, they remained in close contact right up through all the reunions. She was a lively presence in our lives. And hired me for my first job in the kitchen at Spalding. I'll miss her sparkle. Much love to Lynne and family from the Eastons. Roberta will be very much missed!

In high school I worked as as a tray girl under the supervision of Roberta. She had such a good time as a dietitian that I decided to be one too. Marilou Milano Smith

I'm so thankful for the friendship I made with Roberta. Truly a beautiful woman inside and out. We will miss her.

Lynne and I were childhood friends, I remember Roberta designing and making elaborate clothes for our Barbie dolls. The clothes were the most fashionable which how I remember Roberta, always fashionable and creative!!

Love my Roberta. I strive for just half of her zest for life everyday. She will be missed.
