Rhonda, I am missing you so much, I visited your grave Monday with a heavy heart, Sugar, Min. Schnauzer, your baby and mine, has been hospitalized, including the ER, about 4 times in the least week and a half, yesterday I held her as there was no more hope with her "necrotizing pancreatitis" and was gently put to sleep, now to be with you and Woody, it broke my heart so, after just loosing Woody in March also this year! I would like to be with you baby sister and our family and our pets. For now know they are with you and playing happily again, love you all so very much as I continue to pay respect to your grave with planted flowers, candles, gifts, cleaning of and visiting, which you deserve.

Love you baby girl and please give all including my dear sweet babies a tight hug and kiss for me, Cheryl

As you celebrate "Mother's Day" in Heaven with mom, we remember as the two of us, Gene and I, always have with so much pride and love, as the wonderful mother and grandmother you were, always sacrificing and being front and center, you were a "priceless treasure" and always will be with "us", your sister and brother-in-law, as we three were always about the "love of family", as well as mom and dad and Jim. Never forgetting a Mother's Day on your behalf then and now, flowers are coming up that we planted for you at the gravesite, solar lights in place, eternal candle lit. Your "light" has never diminished as it was in "life", valued, respected then and now. Never forgetting the phone call, the card, the cake, the dinner. As always showing the love we have for you, the gifts we showered on "you" and the love in taking care and remembering your gravesite, always with so much love and admiration for my sweet baby sister! Always missed and forever loved, on this "Mother's Day" to you and mom, you are surrounded with so much love there in Heaven, till I join you, your only sister, your older sister, your twin of life, Cheryl "Susie" and your brother-in-law who misses you with every breathe, Gene

Love forever my sweet baby sister, always in my heart, thoughts and prayers, Cheryl

Dearest Rhondie, It has been 1 year today that you had your massive stroke. Was thinking of you this past Sunday, September 29, 2013,which was 31 years ago that day since Dad died. And today also, was the day he was buried, such horrific memories. I live for the most part thinking you are still here with me, still can't comprehend that you are gone. Losing you is like losing me, like we were twins!! You walk with me every day in heart and soul, missed and forever loved, sisters, Cheryl

Oh my "little vision of loveliness", how i miss our phone calls each day and night, we always had time for each other, no excuses, just plenty of love, I wanted to call and hear your voice Friday night, but, the news of the day, our son passed, would have broken your heart as you loved him so very much, but, i take comfort that you were waiting for him with such open arms and always that beautiful smile you had 24/7, I know you have your arms around me always as I feel your presence, and it does calm me. I love and miss you so much, and I can't wait to be with you again, love you, your only sister, Cheryl (Cheryl Susie as you would say)

I can never begin to express my shock and sadness at news of Rhonda's passing.Rhonda interned with me in the probation department at Municipal Court. Her kindness and caring was apparant in everything she said and did. She was so humble, although she was extremly intelligent and insightful. She talked so lovingly about her family-I look at the pictures and feel I know each of you. I'm so glad that she graced my corner of the world-even if it was for a short time. A spirit so gentle and kind never dies, but lightens the way for the rest of us. Goodbye, my friend, I'm glad we knew each other. Mary Houck
October 14, 2012
I am missing you so much, you were always such a part of me, looking forward to being with you again, always with so much love and admiration for a beautiful human being, the best God had to offer!
October 11, 2012
Eugene and Family; My sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with you all.Rhonda was a lovely person and I always loved her sweet smile and her friendship to me.I will miss seeing her bright smile at the salon. God has a new Angel and we have a new Guardian Angel. Love to you-Jason Michael
October 10, 2012
Rhonda, we go back as far as I've known Cheryl, which is almost 46 years. I've watched you grow up. I've watched you grow in to a beautiful woman who loved life to the max! In your younger days as a young mother you struggled along but never gave up hope that your life would get better. Even through your roughest times you made sure your son was well cared for and many times you went without so he could have the things a boy desires. Most of all you gave all your love and that's something money can't buy. Once Jason was old enough to be on his own you spread your wings and took flight! Finally having enough confidence to walk out your front door and chase your dreams. We all got the pleasure of seeing you reach many of your goals. The last five years or so have been your brightest. You found the love of your life, Eugene, and most of all you found yourself. It was a pleasure to read your FB page and feel your love for GOD and your life come right off the pages. You were a walking testimony of the life of a Christian. It was a joy and honor to know you and I'm going to miss you so very much. Take flight sweet lady and strut those golden streets like the Diva you are! (p.s. don't worry about Cheryl and Eugene because we all will look out for them) Love ya
October 08, 2012
Dearest Cheryl, there are no words that can ease your pain, but our hearts break for the loss you feel. Rhonda will be with you always, watching and guiding you in ways only you will feel. My prayers are with you, and her husband Gene. May God ease your emptiness with his grace.
October 08, 2012
your light burns within my soul....
October 08, 2012
To my dearest one and only "baby" sister, my soul, my heart, my very being. I am so very sorry that i couldn't do as much this time for you, i tried with all my being as i have my whole life for "you and yours", but, i take comfort in the fact i have always taken care of "you and yours" and was always there for you, if i could have changed places it would have happened, but, that being said, i am so devastated and heartbroken, i don't know what i will do without you, i still can't imagine i am so grief stricken!!! We were like twins in thought and love for one another! I do know more pain and suffering was to come, so, I know you and God knew, it was your time, now you can dance and hug your big brother and went home to be with "our family" I am trying so hard, I worry about your grandson, but, know God will be there for him and your arms wrapped around him with all the angels needed to protect him. I look forward to the day I will join you, mom and dad and Jim, i waited to post as i am so full of grieving emotion, it is so unbearable!! We will take care of your "smoochiepoo", Gene misses not only his sister-in-law, but "his baby sister", he just broke down and cried, rest in peace sweet gentle baby girl, "my baby girl", always in my thoughts, heart and my soul, love through eternity, our life together and the bond will never never be broken by anyone and/or anything, death inclusive, while i am waiting to come "home", you have all of your body working for you and now the heavens have open up "dance away sweet child of God"" Love forever, your one and only "older sister", xoxo, Cheryl (and Gene)
