There's so many quality's that make Ms. Rhonda a special lady. She always had a smile on her face & something to say that would crack you up. I loved going to thrift stores with her & my mom, although I'd drop from shopping before they did.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family. May God wrap his loving arms around y'all. Ms. Rhonda will definitely be missed.

Rhonda’s sweet face was the first one I saw when I started work in the Business Office at Willis-Knighton in Dec 1988. She became more than a co-worker, she was a very valued friend. She went through life’s ups and downs with me and was always very supportive and kind to me and to my boys - she became extended family to us. She had a heart of gold and she will be missed.
