Jim, I was so sad and shocked to read of Roberta’s passing. I was chatting with her in church Sunday before last. We will miss her at St. James, especially at the next Fashion Show. She was an expert in the modelling field. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.Take care. Ferne

Roberta, Roberta, my dear Sister Roberta…. My heart aches and breaks that I can no longer hug you and kiss you and say I love you, just one more time… I know there was a great reunion in heaven with your daughter Susan, our parents and our Baby Sister Lenette but I was not prepared to say goodbye…. So instead I will say ‘Those were the days my Sister, we thought they’d never end… oh yes, those were the days’… my heartfelt sympathy and love to Jim, Kevin and James.
