    She is a warm tender hearted woman who made a non-blood related nephew feel like a member of the family. I know she is in heaven rejoicing with those who went before her.

    Our loss is heaven’s gain 🙂

    I worked with Roberta at St. Thomas Hospital from 1976 to 1980. I was in my 20s and she was like a sweet Mom to me. Loved her fun and kind spirit and her love for people. I am so sad to hear this news. My condolences to her family. This sweet lady has a special place in Heaven….I am sure of it.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Roberta was always so good to me and Micky. I loved her visits here to Cosby. We will be praying for you and family.

    Words cannot describe the emptiness in our hearts since Nannie left us. We will see her again one day and will never lose her again.
