Paula, and all who loved Robena, I am sorry for your loss. I met Bena at the Loffler Senior Activity Center, while she was a volunteer Home Delivered Meals driver. Her lovely laugh followed her everywhere, and I can only imagine that her smile and joy brought comfort to many home bound seniors through the years. Later, when Paula and Bena came to the center for Bridge, i eagerly waited for my Tuesday morning hug from dear Robena. I will keep Bena in my prayers, and will pray for comfort in the hearts of all who loved her.

Paula and all of Robena's Family: I am so glad I got to meet you, Paula and Robena at my first Bridge lesson. Robena had such a robust personality. You looked after her so dearly. My most heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time of loss. Happy I got to meet this wonderful, one-of-a-kind lady.
