May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
May the rains fall soft upon your fields,
and until we meet again.....
May God hold you in the palm of Her hand.
There will be no formal funeral services, Rhonda would want to be remembered lovingly at your own will and on your own time. Loved always and forever.
