  1. To the entire family, I want to express my condolences. I remember many happy times with your family. It is always so hard to lose a mother no matter how old they are or the events leading up to the death.

  2. My sincere sympathy to you Donald, and also you Carolyn, and the whole family. It’s always such a loss to loose a love one.
    I knew Roberta, from Rosehill. I’am one of the Rosehill, lunch-bunch. I was the last cafeteria managers they had, and was there when Roberta retired.
    I live in Golden, Mo. right close to Eureka Springs, Ar.

    My Prayers and thoughts are with you. You had a wonderful wife, and Mother. I had a a very good friend…I will miss her dearly.

    God be with you all…..Betty Ann Beckler
