    I haven’t been around my big “Roberts” family for some time as I married a military member and moved away. But one of our duty stations was Panama City, Fl in 1990. My husband was on a yr remote to Korea and I was in FL with 3 young children. There wasn’t any family around. But Aunt Alice and Uncle Stu took time to come visit me and the children. That visit meant the world to me. I enjoyed our time we shared, the stories we shared and the hugs we shared. I’ll always remember the visit and her love and kindness.

I spent many days visiting as a kid , she always had a snack for me and we spent many afternoons chatting in my youth . She was one of my favorite neighbors and she will be missed .
