  1. I am so very saddened by the news of Roberts passing. We thought so much of him. Thinking back over the years, I realize how much he ( and all of you) were such a huge part of my life. I have so many memories of him but most of all, I remember his great sense of humor, his smile and his laugh. Clay remembers him being such a nice guy and enjoyed being around him and enjoyed his stories and good humor as well. We are both touched by his life. We will keep him alive in our memories and our hearts forever and ever. God bless you all. All our love, Darla

  2. Ben Poteat says:

    My thoughts are with you and the family and how death robs us of our loved ones. Jehovah God has promised to remove death from the earth and reunite us with our loved one on a cleansed earth in the future. (Revelation 21:4; John 5:28,29; John 17:3; Psalms 83:18) In the meantime you can be sure that God understands how you feel now! The Bible assures us: "He is healing the brokenhearted ones, And is binding up there painful spots." Psalms 147:3
