Deepest Sympathy
My deepest sympathies to you Joann, Brenda and the rest of the family, for the loss of such a dear one. Miss Roberta and Mr. Henry were two of our neighborhood "aunts" and "uncles" that watched over us as youngsters. I will always remember them with the fondest of memories. Keeping you in my prayers. Love, Sandy. Psalms 29:11

To the family. I am so sorry for your lost. Jeremiah 29:11,12 assures us of God's thoughts toward us, to give us a future and a hope. May this bring confort to your family, in your time of sorrow.

Dear JoAnn, Christine and All: I am very sorry to have heard of Aunt Roberta's passing. All my life I have known her to be the most welcoming and loving of persons -- her brilliant, warm smile shining all around. She represented what it meant to be a loving, welcoming heart. She definitely heard Jesus's directive: "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for such is the Kingdom of Heaven." She glowed with Christ's welcoming love - and this I shall remember, and indeed cherish, perhaps above all. Go with God, Dear Auntie. We will miss you dearly...but dearly. Love, Carlton ("LIttle Charlie's" baby).
