I am very sorry for your loss. I have known Rhonda since we ran around in high school. I was from Notre Dame but her group of friends took me into there group. She was always so kind and a smile that could beat all. She even "hunted me down" to come work for her when she was opening a new branch for Transitions. I loved her and am so sorry to hear she has passed away. My prayers for all of you.

Rhonda's dad and my dad (Harold H.) were friends. After my brother (Kenny) was killed in VNam, we went over to the Chandler's. Rhonda was great with me. Much later in my life when I needed someone to talk things out, I looked her up. She was awesome...sweet & funny & tough!! The world was a better place with her in it!! I'm so sorry for everyone's loss!!
