I am so sorry to hear about Rhonda's passing. She will be truly missed. My love and prayers of peace go out to her family. Remember this is only a temporary separation and you will see her again for she now walks with the angels and sing at the throne of God, (and I know how much she loved to sing).
Barbara Meyers left a message on August 16, 2023:
My family and I mourn with you on the loss of your sweet daughter Rhonda. I have only heard and known about her as an adult from Facebook. Betty and Jimmy lived across the street from me when Ronda was born and I've tried to follow her as much as I could through her life. Our family sends you our deepest sympathy. May your family receive the peace and comfort that only Jesus can give.

Tom Jordan left a message on August 15, 2023:
And this is the weaving of human living - of whose fabric each individual is a part and each is intimately connected, but not one of those persons is ever quite to be duplicated or replaced. Each is a unique and incommunicably tender life. The world is a beautiful and wondrous place on its own, but it was made just a measure better for many people with Ronda in it. I had the opportunity to know the only Ronda Raquel Howard to ever exist on this Earth and I miss her. Rest peacefully Ronda knowing your family will persevere.Love Tom

My condolences to the family for the loss of a loved family member and friend. I did not know Ronda as well as I would have liked, but she was a lovely presence at work. I had one meaningful interaction with her where I needed to seek her guidance on a rather personal matter. She listened to me with an open heart and just let me cry. She offered full acceptance and a lack of judgment. This interaction has stayed with me the entire time I've been at our company because for that one moment, in my own realm of sadness and feeling of dread, she cared. I'm sorry to hear of the loss of Ronda. She was a beautiful personality and a warm presence that will be missed.
