Barb, David & Peggy--So sorry for your loss. Your Mom was one of the sweetest and kindest people I know. She always had a smile and a kind word. Childhood memories are spotty but I do remember playing with you down on the farm and all the fun we had. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Roberta was the most amazing beautiful lady I ever knew. I enjoyed working for her my Jr and Sr year at Fillmore school. She taught me many great things. She is a lady I have always held close in my heart and always will. So many wonderful memories. May she R.I.P.

Roberta and I were born on the same day.but I was a year older. We often spent our birthdays together with a party at the cabin owned by the RG&E. We went to movies together played paper dolls and were childhood friends until I left for college. It's strange that I got this information through her obituary. I always thought about her on our birthdays. I have old-time pictures of her, if her children would like to have them. Just contact me at the above email. I am so sorry.
