Dear Robert, Harriet and Harold,

Words are not adequate to express my heartfelt condolences to you in the passing of Roberta. I remember fondly the Sundays we would share after church with George, Mary and my parents Robert and Hattie Benson. May the Lord bless and keep each of you in His comforting arms.

Bob, Harriet and Harold, I share the loss of a Very Special Lady. I sometimes called Roberta "Mah" because she was a second mother to me. She would listen to my stories and offered advice when I needed it, I will cherish those days forever. Thank You for letting her be a part of my life.

Our condolences go out to Bob, Harriett and Harold. We are saddened to learn of "Bert's" passing. We will miss her smile, kind thoughts and amazing cooking. I will never forget our days in Morris Plains and Newark. And there was that famous Hawaiian vacation, what fun! She made me feel like a member of the family. I remember visiting her Mother who had made fish bone stew so I know where Bert got her skills.

Our last visit at the DC Union Station gave us a chance to reminisce but wish we had done more. There are so many great memories. She is a special lady and will certainly be managing everyone in Heaven.
