"Rhonda was my high school mate and neighbor. She lived across the street from me when we were in High School and she stood up with me when I get married in 1983. She was the first person I called the night my dad passed away 32 years ago. It had been many years in between but I saw her at our reunion last year. I am thankful for the friendship we had all those years ago and having the chance to see her again last year. My thoughts are with her family and dearest friends. Lean on those near you in the days ahead and hold your precious memories close to your heart forever."
