    Jimmie was a wonderful person. She worked with me in Nags Head while staying summers in Duck. What a creative floral designer! My sincere sympathy to your family.

    I only had the pleasure of meeting Jimmie once, but I know she was an amazing woman and mother, because her only daughter is JUST that. Sending lots of mountain love and prayers to the Roberts/Lewis families at the beach. In the coming days, I hope you find comfort knowing your parents and brother have been reunited for eternity. Blessings to you.

    Praise the Lord for Jimmie & Oscar Roberts! Great memories! Who would have thought our lives would meet up at Colony Beach Florist! What a team! Thank you for sharing them with me through those precious years! I’ll always remember that beautiful brides bouquet she made just for me to go on my bible on our wedding day…30(wow!) years ago! Jimmie truly was a great inspiration to me! May God’s peace be with you all!
