Dave, Elizabeth and David,

Rhonda was a sweet, kind, gentle and strong person. It was so evident how much she loved her family. She touched so many lives and will be missed. It's hard to lose someone you love so much. Love never dies you take it with you. It was a pleasure to know her and to have you all as neighbors for so many years. May God comfort you all and ease your pain during your season of grief. Keeping you in prayer.
