Yeah, RaDonna was loved by all who knew her!

She always liked to dress up and look nice. A beautiful lady inside and out and everyone that knew her experienced her charm, charisma and wit. She loved to make people happy and laugh! And boy did she love to laugh! But what she loved the most in this world was her daughter, Kristie and her grandchildren. They were the light of her life. She never missed a football game that her grandsons participated in nor a choir concert or dance recital for her granddaughter. She was so proud of them. They were her pride and joy and she loved them to the moon and back. Weeks before her passing her sister asked “Let me pray for you, RaDonna” and she said “no, let me pray” and then she quoted the Lord’s prayer. She believed in our Lord and Savior and we believe she is in Heaven today! RaDonna was a lover. She could heel bruised knees and broken hearts, and was soft yet strong although she had to endure and overcome many trials. Her strength was amazing! She held smiles when she felt like screaming and sang when she wanted to cry and she always fought for what she believed in. All of her life she gave of herself, so that her family could thrive. She cried along with her friends and family, if you were heartbroken, so was she. She was happy for you when you succeeded and always wanted her friends and family to do well.

Her love was unconditional and she taught her daughter to find strength and move on with life and we all pray she never forgets what she is worth! Kristie, what she may say to you today if she were here is: you are “woooooonderful,” SMILE, let everyone know that today you are stronger than you were yesterday and my love is always with you. RaDonna was definitely one of a kind, her memory will live on in our hearts and she will be sincerely missed by all those who knew and loved her.
