I never met a person that was so giving. She never once said no to helping others and gave more than her "fair share". Her smile and her laugh will stay in my memories. She loved her precious "furbabies", golf and more golf. I know she is so happy to be reunited with Lloyd. I miss her and being able to give her a call, for a pep talk.

Condolences to the Graybeal family.

Very sorry to read the news of Rhonda's passing. I first met Rhonda as a teenager working at Regency Mall when she owned a store in the mall.

Our community is a little sadder for the loss.
