    So sorry to hear about Rhonda. We grew up togeather. I will always remember walking up to her Dads store and her Dad would let us shoot pool. A lot of great childhood memories of her. Even tho I have been gone from Cumberland for a lot of years I was able to run into her a few years back. It was so good to see her again. I can’t believe she is gone. Prayers to her family

    I’m so sad for your loss. May you each find comfort in the beautiful memories she’s left behind.
    I can still see her in the kitchen (her happy place) preparing the family meal feasts and cooking for the elementary school classes to stop by while trick or treating on Halloween night!
    She loved her family more than anything in this world. I pray you each hold on to that thought.
    Much love sent to each of you.

    It was so sad to hear of Rhonda’s passing. We have known Rhonda and Roy for over 20 years and they are a wonderful couple. Rhonda had a huge heart and always seemed to be doing something special for someone.
    She not only dearly loved her family, but also had so much love for her animals over the years as well.
    We will miss her and will have Roy and her family in our thoughts and prayers.

    We are so sad to hear about Rhonda’s passing. We were always amazed that anyone could have so much energy. She always had so many balls in the air and was so good hearted. She will be sorely missed! (Scout loved her like she was part of the family.)

    Rhonda was the nicest and most generous person you could know. She was always thinking of others and supported them while ignoring her own needs. Rhonda was the backbone of her family and they will miss her so much as will the rest of us. Sending love, prayers and condolences.
