A JUDGE NEEDS YOUR PRAYERS
April 30, 2013 § 5 Comments
Chancellor Ed Roberts of Oxford suffered stroke symptoms while on the bench last week. He at first insisted on finishing his docket, but finally relented and agreed to be taken to the ER at Baptist Hospital.
It was at the hospital that he learned that he has inoperable lung cancer and brain cancer. He is headed to MD Anderson Hospital in Houston.
I know he and his wife Sheila would appreciate your prayers. Judge Roberts’ brother, Larry, is a judge on the Court of Appeals. Both are natives of Meridian.
Well … I’m sorry to have just learned of Judge Roberts’ death. I just didn’t know when I made my post today.
No problem. It was a nice sentiment.
Hello – I live in Oxford and I just saw your posting. Judge Roberts is a very courteous and pleasant person in “real life setting” and also in the “on the bench setting”. I’m so sorry to hear about this. Concern, prayers, and best wishes on the way.
Done. Please keep us posted on his progress.
Thanks. I will.
