Roberta was such a wonderful woman. I loved working with her at textile mills. I never knee what funny quip would come out of her. She was always so sweet. My thoughts are with you all.

Paul, this is probably the darkest period in your life, but cling to the knowledge that Roberta will be without the pain and suffering she has endured the past few years. Hold on to all of the good memories of life with her and that should help with the pain of your loss.
