My deepest sympathy to all Rhonda’s family and friends. My heart aches for the void her passing will leave in so many lives. I will always think fondly of our horse conversations at the feed store. Rhonda was always quick with a smile and an easy laugh. I find myself smiling now thinking back of a particular horse story she shared with me. God Bless you!

I am so thrilled I got to meet Rhonda through being friends with Karen MacAfee. I could sense the true friendship they shared. My faith allows me to believe they are riding horses now together. Rhonda was as beautiful inside as she was on the outside. My heart is broken for the entire family. Sincerely.

Megan Lawrie January 12, 2016 at 10:12 am

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Kline/Cherry/Wall families. Rhonda was a dear friend and classmate. I was blessed to know someone with such a kind and loving nature. She will be greatly missed. I can hear her laugh. The loss of Rhonda and Adam is beyond my comprehension and understanding. Heaven has gained two Angels. I continue to pray for Albert as he faces a long recovery. Love and prayers to all the families during this great time of sorrow. God bless.

Samantha Beaver & Ryan and Riley Mitchell January 12, 2016 at 11:11 am

I had the pleasure of meeting Rhonda many years ago while working at SSBD. We had so much fun working together. She always had a big smile on her face and her laugh was contagious! She always talked about her family and her love for them was unconditional and endless. I would see her each month at the bank when paying our house payment. It was like no time had gone by at all. She greeted me with a huge smile and we would chat and catch up each time. I will forever be grateful for knowing Rhonda. She will be missed by so many and loved always.

Our hearts go out to everyone. May you find peace knowing someday we will be with her again. Thoughts and prayers are with you always.

Rest easy Rhonda and Adam.

With love,
Samantha, Ryan and Riley

Debbie Leslie January 12, 2016 at 11:14 am

We have lost a lot more than a mother, friend, and the most magnificent person you would ever meet. Words do not have a place to express the amount of sorrow this tragedy has unleashed on this family. We are heartbroken that we have lost such a great friend. If I could trade places with my friend, I would! No one, no family should have to bear this burden. I pray that the Lord gives those who were spared the chance to heal, the peace, and comfort. May the Lord lay His healing hands on this family and guide them thru this storm. As I walk thru the valley of evil I will not fear, thou art with me. AMEN.

Rita Gerber January 12, 2016 at 5:52 pm

I am so sorry to hear about Rhonda. You and her family are in my prayers. I remember the first day I met her at Ron’s garage with my dad. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. You and your family are in my prayers.

Merri Shreflee January 12, 2016 at 7:59 pm

We will all miss her contagious smile that she always wore and would light up the room! She was a special person that left special memories with all whom she came into contact with! An amazing mom to so many….they are all blessed to have had her in their lives, and now as their special angel to watch over them! Praying for your strength to get through this tradegy, knowing that Rhonda is helping you with each step! God Bless.
