    When I think of Virginia I think of encouragement and prayer. I would go to her for encouragement and we would exchange scriptures and pray for each other. Virginia was a joy to know and have as a friend. She knew just the right words that needed to be shared and was wise in her advice. I praise God for Virginia Roberts!

  3. Dear Pam,
    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Please know you and the children are in my thoughts and prayers.
    You are not alone. May God’s peace comfort you.

  4. Such a loving person!
    The strength of your spirit will be sorely missed by your family.
    Rest in peace now. Your work here is complete.

  5. I think I’ll miss her calling me by my middle name “Harrison” the most. I have some of her cards from over the 40+ years filled with scripture and extra stickers that only added to the enjoyment of her message.

    Anyone meeting Mrs. Roberts (Virginia) knew her love for the Lord and her kind generous heart. I’m a better person for having known her and I’ll treasure my interactions with her along with our last conversation for the rest of my days.

    I know she’s at peace now and find comfort in knowing her pain and suffering are no more. She was one of a kind and I’ll think of her often and dearly when I do.

    For her family, I’m here for you! Thanks for sharing your mom with me!
