In Memory of Mae Robertson

My mother was so excited about the Sacramento Children’s Museum that would be opening soon. She couldn’t wait until the day came when she could take her great-grandson to it. Unfortunately, she didn’t live long enough to see this happen.  It is so exciting and even though my mother has died before she was able see and enjoy it, I would like to keep her dream and excitement for this new museum alive through contributions that will be made in her memory.  Diana Bristol

Miss you Mom!
Ted Robertson

An incredibly gifted lady who we are blessed to call our friend.
