So sorry to hear the sad news about our long-time friend. Bro. and Sis. Roberts have been great friends to me and my family for many years. Our friendship remains today and our heart is broken for Bro. Roberts and the whole family. Recovering from the loss of our loved ones is not about forgetting, but about giving ourselves permission to remember. She will live forever in the memories of everyone she leaves behind. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. May you feel comfort and peace during this difficult time.

I am so sorry...There are no words to describe my love for Sister Roberts. Our friendship goes back over 40 years! She was always my best friend. I loved her dearly. She beat me to the throne room! I cannot be there but my heart goes out to all the family. Praying for strength to come in the days ahead. Hugs to all.
