Dear Kathy and Donna, family in general. No words can express my sadness. Your Mother was one of a kind. I’m grateful for our years together, a special friendship. Good times, sad times, all of it. The diagnosis of her condition shocked me. I still can’t believe, she is gone. I want to express my deepest sympathy, I’m sorry, I could not attend the services. I was plain sick. My thoughts were with you. Love, Renate

In this sorrowful time, I would like to extend to you my heartfelt condolences. May God comfort you and your family. Sharing in your sorrow and may your heart and soul find peace and comfort. Someone so special can never be forgotten for she was a dear friend to me and my mother, Florence Roberson. She was a great woman and much admired. I will keep you all in my prayers.

Tim, Mariessa and Family,

I am sorry for your loss, please know you will see her again. :-)

I think most called her Grandma as I did for over 25 years. She was very sweet and had a lot of love for her family.

Love y’all!
