God looked around his garden and found an empty space.
Then He looked down upon this earth and saw Rhonda’s tired face.
He placed his arms around her and lifted her to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful as He only takes the best.
May God comfort you in your time of sorrow.
Rest In Peace beautiful Lady.

Rhonda, We had some awesome discussions over the years and had a lot in common (except for Auburn of course),lol, but we both were always just joking. Your love for Fripp Island, Jimmy Buffett and concerts are what I remember talking about the most. It’s so strange, we had not spoken in quite a while because people get busy. A couple of weeks ago, I messaged her with a question about Chico’s clothing and I had no idea how things had gotten. I’m glad I got to talk to you one last time. Bill, please take care of yourself. My prayers will be with you. I only regret we never got to see a concert together. God bless you, Rhonda, sweet lady. You and your smile and enthusiasm for life will be missed by many people. 💜

So sorry to hear of Rhonda's passing. She was a wonderful friend and coworker. She always had a listening ear. We had several conversations before my husband passed about how they were both going thru cancer. She wore a smile even thru her suffering. She is walking the streets of gold now with all her friends and family. RIP now with no more suffering. Thoughts and prayers will be with her family. Love you Rhonda, fly high.❤❤❤

My dear friend Rhonda. I am forever grateful to have spent these last few years having fun and enjoying our trips, just like many years ago with our job. Your memory will go with me everywhere and I will cherish our memories together for a lifetime. Prayers & hugs to Bill, Mr Shelton and your fur-babies. Until we meet again. ❤️

Rhonda was a genuine person that I very much enjoyed knowing. The world is a better place because Rhonda made a positive impact on all of us that had the pleasure of knowing her. Unfortunately, it had been a few months since I talked with her, but I hope that she knew how much I always enjoyed my relationship with her. Rhonda’s passing is a loss for all that knew her, but we were all certainly graced by knowing her. Rest In Peace , my friend.

I am saddened to hear of Rhonda's passing and my prayers are for Bill and all the family in these coming days. I remember her joy and humor when I first met her at Susan's (her soon to be sister-in-laws) wedding and what a delight it was to know her. My hope is for strength and blessings on all, as life begins without Rhonda in our daily lives.
