Roberta's Song

I can only tell you part of my Aunt Roberta’s story. I heard my cousin Cathy say She’s an angel gone to glory. She was a friend to all, a Mother to many Of enemies in her life I don’t think she had any. She took care of people, it was in her nature, it was her way, It’s the reason why I’m standing here today. Along with her cooking you got her opinion and some good advice. And if you didn’t get it, then you got it twice. They say that Don’t nobody do ya like family. Well my Aunt Roberta treated everybody like family. A friend, A Mother, And to those lucky few... She was a lover. Now an angel gone to glory and this only part of my Aunt Roberta’s story.
