Although we hadn't met her often over the years, Rhoda was a welcoming and warm person to us and we know a wonderful Mom and Grandmother to our dear friends Lisa( her daughter) and Glenn and family. We know Carl will miss her so but hopefully take comfort in the wonderful legacy of love she leaves with her family and friends. All peaceful now.
