So very sad to hear the loss of this sweet sweet lady. LaRonda was one of the most giving ladies I have ever known. She gave of her time and would help anyone in need. Never a doubt that she loved her family with all her heart. You knew after just spending a few minutes with her she loved the Lord our God and was very much a Christian. I know she is welcome into her eternal home with Jesus's arms wide open. Beautiful LaRonda is now free of pain. Jackie and family may God be with you as you go through all the very difficult days ahead. She will be missed by so many that loved her. Love to all, Vickie Gregg Benson

LaRonda was a very dear friend. She was also my hairdresser for a long time. We both sold BeautiControl Cosmetics and had lots of fun together. We are out of town so I will miss the visitation and her service. I am so sorry for that but my prayers are with the family. May God send comfort to each one. I loved LaRonda and just know she was VERY special and rests in the arm of our Lord. God bless.

A beautiful church sister. She was always first in line to work for the church no matter what needed done and always with a big smile on her face. We will miss her hugs and food (as she is a great cook) at the church potlucks when they resume.
