Oh, how we miss both of these dear people. Sundays always included a hand on my shoulder from Don and a bright 'hello' from Bertie. Church will just not be the same for many of us. God bless the families of Don and Roberta.

Roberta was a delightful person. My mother Marjorie Millett Meranda and Roberta were first cousins. I remember visiting at the house in Winchester with my parents. We always had a good time. My mother always talked about how fond she was of Roberta and Don and Harry and Carrie Wise. I know she will be missed. I am sure you will have lots of wonderful memories. Please have comfort in knowing she is resting peacefully in Heaven.
