So very sorry to hear of Rhonda's passing. We went to the same school. Rhonda was at the top of her class. She was up to date on dress and dance. We would eat apples from her grandmother's tree. They were so very good. So very sorry for Your Loss. GOD Bless You

Emma, my condolences! You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I'll remember the encouragement mama Rhonda gave me during my last pregnancy/child letting me know I can get thru it . She'll be missed.

I was sad to learn of the passing of Rhonda and I wish Terri and all of her family God's love as they reflect on her life.

Rhonda, Terri and her parents were cherished people in my childhood. I can still remember how close Rhonda and my sister Judy were. Even though we were second cousins, we all felt like brothers and sisters. That was a wonderful time of joy and laughter in my life.

Rhonda used to bring her dog Butch over to the house almost daily. She had to walk past Aunt Olga's and Roy Phillips houses to get to ours. She was so personable and was loved by Mom and Dad like a daughter. Harry was my Dads favorite Uncle, even though he was younger than my Dad.

Rhonda was there when Judy had her first car accident. And I loved hiding under the bed when Judy would have a party with boys and they would play post office and go into the back room to experience a teenage kiss. Oh the stories Judy and Rhonda would share after those parties.

For some reason, Rhonda nicknamed me Erf. Not exactly sure why, but it stuck for a long time.

I am sorry the years slipped by and I had not seen Rhonda in decades. But her memory will always be cherished by me and I would love to see Terri again.

As I give thanks today, I am grateful for Rhonda being part of my early years. Cherished memories!

God bless you all!

Second Cousin Percy

I am a walker at 6:30 a.m. every morning and I met Rhonda while I was walking past her townhouse. Every so often I would see her and I would catch up on her illness and what was the next step or treatment. It was a nice break from my walk and I enjoyed seeing her. I will miss our visits. Rhonda was a wonderful lady both inside and out. I will miss her and will pray for her family as they manage to get through this loss.
