Dear Paul and family,
I was deeply saddened today to hear of Rhonda's passing. I did not know her well, but by all accounts she was a very special woman. I am so very sorry for your loss. I can hardly remember you without Rhonda. You have been together for so long.
Please know that I send my love to you and your entire family.
With deepest sympathy,

To the family of Rhonda,
My heart goes out to you all as you mourn this tragic loss in your family. It's been many years since I use to work with Rhonda & Theresa at Shaw's in North Windham but I will always remember Rhonda's big smile and sense of humor. Most recently through Facebook I would see the many pictures and updates of her most favorite things in her life...her family. May she rest in peace and may you all find comfort among your family and friends, Sincerely,

Rhonda was a kind, gracious person who cared about people and their lives beyond the courthouse. She liked hearing about what my family was doing and talking about her grandchildren.

My thoughts are with you all in such a difficult time. As a nurse, I have learned to seperate myself from my patients and their families, but once and a while there is a patient and family that pull me in. Rhonda had that effect when I admitted her into SCU the first time. She spent days with us showing us pictures of her family and gleaming with pride.
Then when I learned I was re-admitting her, my heart sank for her and her family.
I just wish the outcome had been different. I believe that the hardest decisions in life are the correct ones, and I am sure saying goodbye was the hardest and most difficult decision of your lives.
I had hoped to see you you all again to say goodbye and to tell you how very sorry i am for your loss. It was a pleasure to meet you all and to care for Rhonda.

Sending peace and loving memories to the family of a wonderfully sweet lady who had such great love of her family. Priviledged to have worked by her side and shared in her laughter. -Jen Tescher
