Letters to the Editor

Grateful for your heartfelt tributes | Letters

We’ve lost our much loved husband, father, and grandfather, Kip Roberts, who passed away on June 26.

The response from all of you wonderful folks who sent cards, flowers, food, and messages to our family during our very difficult and sad time is so appreciated. I only wish that Kip could read and hear all the heartfelt and fond memories written and said, remembering him as a man who touched many of your lives as a teacher, coach, friend and family member.

Thanks to many that helped him through his medical issues, especially Dr. Wingren and staff, who were special to him.

Saying “thank you” to the paramedics of S.J. EMS doesn’t even begin to express our appreciation. They gave us that sense of relief when they walked through our door. You are the best.

I know I’ve forgotten someone and if I have please forgive me.

We will be having a barbecue/potluck sometime in early Fall in Kip’s memory, welcoming all who can attend. He leaves a legacy of love through his children, grandchildren and generations to come. We will miss him forever.

Kitty Roberts & Family, San Juan Island
