Messages & Condolences

From Vicki Henry Julian...

I met Roberta in grade school, and although we went our separate ways afterwards, I always considered her one of my favorite childhood friends. Fortunately, our paths crossed again later when she worked with my dear, late husband at Rusty’s. We both thought her to be a fun and kind individual. My sympathy to all in the loss of a special human being.
