“Mom loved being a teacher and loved her students. She loved her children and her family, and she gave all she had to see them succeed. She did this not for the fame or for the glory, but because she loved her Lord.” SHS

One of Roberta’s favorite bible verses, which she exemplified beautifully was, “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32
