Remembering Roberta Kirby


Dear Editor:

Roberta had a smile that could melt snow, and a handshake that could inspire respect. She loved children, and was my most beloved substitute teacher during the five years I taught at Topanga Elementary School. She was a gift to everyone who knew her. I saw her 3 weeks before her passing, and though wheel-chair bound, she was as radiant as ever. What a role model for us all!
