A Sad Announcement

Some reading this may already know, but I just discovered that Bud Robertson's wife passed away after a long illness. Please keep Dr. Robertson and the rest of the family in your prayers. I've never met a finer gentleman in my life and I know this comes as a great blow to him.

Below is Mrs. Robertson's obituary:

Elizabeth (Libba) Green Robertson, 77, of Blacksburg, died Wednesday, February 6, 2008, at Kroontje Health Care Center.

She was born in Danville, Va., on April 30, 1930, to the late Howard P. and Alma Wells Green. She is survived by her husband, James I. (Bud) Robertson Jr., of Blacksburg; daughter, Beth Brown, of Blacksburg; sons and daughters-in-law, James I. III and Tricia Robertson, of Tega Cay, S.C., and Howard W. and Beth Robertson, Oakton, Va.; seven grandchildren, David and Heather Brown, Courtney and Christopher Robertson, Payton, Ethan and Ansley Robertson; sisters and brothers-in-law, Ann and Jack Walton, of Danville, Bobbie and Courtenay Harrison, Virginia Beach, and Gayle and Joe Miller, of Danville. Also grieving is her loyal companion, Bubba.

Special thanks go to loving care-givers, Lorraine Elliott and Lois Hubbard, to the helpful providers of Good Samaritan Hospice, and to the staff of Kroontje Health Care Center. Libba never met a stranger or made an enemy.

Funeral services will be conducted at 2 p.m. Sunday, February 10, 2008, in the Blacksburg United Methodist Church with the Rev. Reggie Tuck officiating. Interment will follow in the Westview Cemetery, Blacksburg. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to any children’s charity.

The family will receive friends from 1 to 3 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday evening, February 9, 2008, at the McCoy Funeral Home, 150 Country Club Drive, S.W., Blacksburg, Va.
