Roberta was a loving sister in law and we couldn’t have asked for a better one. She was full of sunshine and made everyone in the family feel welcome. If she knew you liked something whether it was food or an activity you liked to do she went out of her way to make sure you enjoyed yourself. Roberta will be deeply missed. We are praying for you Bobby, and for Kim, Traci, and their families. Love you all.
