    Bobbie was such a dear and special friend to me. She was one of the smartest people I have ever met with a remarkable memory. I will forever treasure our times together talking about anything and everything. Bobbie was so very wise, and she often put the importance of life into perspective for me.

    I love you and will miss you. Your memory will live on forever.

    Roberta was a treasured member of our Merrill Gardens family. She had a wonderful spirit and was an inspiration to other residents by demonstrating that she would not let her physical impairments keep her from enjoying her life. She always had kind words for everyone, and a beautiful smile on her face. On behalf of all of the staff and residents of Merrill Gardens, we send our condolences to her family. We will keep her memory in our hearts.
