I wish to add something else that came to mind last night. I have fond memories of when Roberta and I were "roomies" at one of our USC Department of Surgery Retreats that was held that year in Santa Barbara. We were both getting ready to get to the conference and both using our "high-wattage" hair dryers simultaneously. Suddenly the power went out. In fact, we learned shortly thereafter that it blew out the power on the entire floor. We couldn't stop laughing when we were hearing our colleagues complain about the power unexpectedly go out in their rooms. The truth has now been revealed.

Roberta and I clicked immediately when we first met at USC Department of Surgery. She was always a great audience for all of my puns and kept encouraging me to entertain her with more. We laughed together constantly. And we'd calm each other down when things became challenging. We were both from Chicago and had so much in common. I felt that she was truly my kindred spirit. May she rest in peace.

I was fortunate enough to have met Roberta at NCH, as part of our business office flood at 3060 Salt Creek. I managed the process to move all departments into our new 3040 Salt Creek building and Roberta was the lead for her department. From the moment I met her, her infectious smile told me she was special. We shared moments over the course of the year it took us to get things settled at the new space, quick little conversations that always left me feeling better about life. There are always those select few, wherever you may wander, who can brighten a day with a simple smile. Roberta was one of those and will be greatly missed. My sincerest and heartfelt condolences to her family and friends.

Mrs Giolli was the purest and kindest human being God has ever graced this Earth. Her hospitality and loving support was beyond words can fathom or describe. Life itself will never be the same without the compassion and unconditional love she openly showed to every individual she met. Her words, wisdom, and powerful ability to take the weight off your shoulders are unmatched. Truly she was one of God's own angels walking among us healing us in ways we never knew were possible. Her doors were always open to the tired and overwhelmed. She took in anyone who needed a mother, a friend, an embrace that cured all wounds to the heart. I can never thank her enough for the absolute most pure form of kindness a human being can offer in this world. I'll always cherish forever the times she took me in, held me, and told me pain is only temporary. There is no way we can repay her for the excellence she displayed every day but together we can live by her example. Her actions can live through us, and through that, so long as we continue to let her teachings live through us, she will always be there. Not just watching us but standing next to us, guiding us, holding us, and letting us know she loves us twice as much as we will ever love her back.

Aunt Roberta was always special. So many people will miss her. Fun fact: When my Grandpa George decided I was old enough to try red wine and I didn't like it, Aunt Roberta, kindly and quietly, got rid of it for me so that Grandpa wouldn't know. Thats stuck in my head for some reason. She was loved and will be loved.
