R.I.P. Ronda


Well-Known Member
Calgon and Glo, we can't thank you two enough for putting together the chance for many of us to meet Ronda out in San Francisco. I truly believe that we are all better for it.

Ronda was an inspiration to all of us.

May she rest in peace forever.

Our deepest condolences go out to her Husband and Family.

With living she taught us how to die; with dying she taught us how to live. Thank you for the lessons, Ronda. You were a "stranger" I came to know, love, admire, cherish and be proud of. I am thankful all your worries and pain are behind you and I pray that everyone in heaven is just waiting for you to get there and help them work on their doll houses :) RIP dear friend; I am richer for having known you.


Forever Remembered
My Heartfelt Condolences

Glo - thank you for sharing this heartbreaking, but expected, news with us. And, Calgon, thank you for arranging for us to meet this brave Butterfly in San Francisco one month and one day ago.

May she rest in peace in God's arms, and may He comfort her family and friends. Mary Ann

I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now
I’m free. I’m following the path God has laid,
you see. I took His hand when I heard Him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day. To laugh, to love,
to work or play. Tasks left undone must
stay that way. I found that peace
at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void, then fill it with
remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh,
a kiss. Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow. I wish you
the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been
full, I savored much. Good friends, good times,
a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. Don’t
lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your
hearts, and peace to thee!
God wanted me now – He set me free!


May she rest in peace. I was lucky to meet her twice. When she first became ill she wrote such great messages . I had saved them in my Addicts e mail which I lost during one change over. I had planned to print them to keep and share and reread. Sail on Mari( I always c alled her this and in SF she said rembmer my name is Rhonda.)

Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
