Rhonda started doing my taxes 23 years ago. Even though, I only saw her once a year, I considered her a friend. I always looked forward to seeing her, sitting in her office, with her beautiful smile and unique laugh. She always tried to do the best she could for us on our taxes and hated when she had to tell us that we would have to pay in that year. She was a very Special lady and you knew that she loved her family with her whole heart. You will be missed by so many. I will miss that smile and your friendship that was just understood because of the person you are. You are rejoicing in Heaven now. RIP. ❤❤❤❤❤

The first time I met her I was having a hard day but her smile lifted me up. It was as I’d known her forever. Some people let Jesus shine through them a bit more than others... Rhonda surely did! 💜 thankful I can see her again one day..and you can too if you know Jesus !

Rhonda was one of the sweetest people I know. Always had a smile, always laughing. Never failed to ask about my girls. She will be missed but I know she is laughing and smiling in Heaven. Prayers to the family for comfort.
