    Dear Sandra,
    I went to High School with Jimmy and remember him very fondly. I just love the picture you used for the obituary as it looks just like him to me. I am truly sorry we all learned about this so late but it does not affect the sincerity of our response. He was a precious soul and we are sorry for your loss and our own.

    Sincerely, pat

    For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

    Pam, Joey, Quinn, Sandy and Michael,
    Our hearts grieve along with you in the homegoing of Jim-husband, father and grandfather. Although we were only privileged to know him a short while, he always was
    smiling, friendly and fun to be around. God’s grace and mercy will get you all through the next weeks as you face life without him. We are thankful for the legacy he leaves with you__ that of faith and trust in His Maker with whom he now rejoices. God bless you all.

    Sandy, Michael, Pam & Joey. You have been in our thoughts and prayers for months, we feel close even after all these years because of lifting you to our Father so often. We rejoice for your faithful husband and dad gone Home but we grieve because of the seperation until you meet again. I wish there were words but there aren’t, just know that our hearts hurt because we love and care for you so! We fully acknowledge with you that He is the great comforter and will be there to carry you in the days and weeks ahead. Memories are a blessing and the tears will likely come at unexpected times. I will especially be aching for you this Father’s Day, it will be my second without my dad and hold onto the promise it gets easier. It helped me to remember that grief is the price we pay for love. I am so thankful for the Godly man he was and for his infectious smile and laugh, he will always be with us through you and all those whose lives were touched and changed because of Jim Roberts. We will continue to pray that God provides exactly what you need at exactly the time you need it. Our love always, B&B
