Memories Timeline


  1. To My Beautiful Baby Sister…

    There are not enough words that will express just how much I will miss you!! You are one of most kind-hearted person I’ve ever known. I will truly miss our “Sisters Trips”. Your smile could always light up a room. Just know the promise I made you, I will forever honor. You will be my guardian angel. Give Mark Alan and Mamma a big hug and kiss from me!! I will forever keep you in my heart!!

    I Love You Baby Sis & Always Will!!


  2. To my little sister: I will always love you till I die and will never forget you. I know at the end we were not close like before, but that does not mean I didn’t love you. All I wanted to do was to help you. I am so sorry I could not have helped you. Rest in peace my little sister. Tell Momma I love her and miss her.

  3. Mark/Andrew and Family: A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Please accept my sincere condolences.

  4. Rhonda was loving, kind and wonderful. Years ago Rhonda came to me and asked if I would address her wedding invitations. I said yes, within 10 minutes I had 4 boxes in my bedroom. I had a deadline, they must be in the mail by March 1. She gave me a month to complete this task. Seems reasonable. The problem was I was a senior in high school with things to do and parties to attend. Rhonda called me mid February to see how it was going. I wasn’t exactly honest, but I knew I needed to stop procrastinating. I think I had around 300 invitations to address, I got the job done and in the mail by March 1. To this day I know Rhonda’s address by heart, because I wrote it over and over and over. I am now happy I did that for her. Rhonda, I love you so much, and I will never forget you.

  5. You will be missed! I will never forget you girlfriend. Heaven has another Angel because you were one on earth. Hope you are at peace now. Condolences to your family.

  6. My sweet , sweet Rhonda ,
    With tears streaming down my face I write
    this to you . You have been such a ” light ”
    in my life for the past 40 years . The journey
    you and I walked is amazing . So much joy
    shared along with laughter , grief and sorrow .
    First after the loss of Mark Alan and then little
    Chrisie . You were there for me every step of
    the way.
    We did have some pretty stinkin’ cute
    matching outfits through the years !!! And
    matching cars, ( red Jeep Grand Cherokees )
    Louis Vuitton purses , tons of painted Stacy
    outfits and even matching upholstery for furniture !
    We were two peas in a pod !
    Celebrating our birthdays every 10 years
    with a vacation was a blast . Jack Tar Villiages
    in the 80’s, facials at the spa in Napa when
    we turned 40 and Cabo at 50 !!! It will be a long
    time before I can walk by a Talbots without
    crying .
    There will never be another best friend
    for me . You were it !!! I will forever hold
    you in my heart and love you forever and
    ever !!!!!

  7. I still can’t believe that you’re gone. I miss you everyday. I catch myself wanting to call you @ lunch everyday & on my way home from work. I know Mark Alan was happy to see his Momma. Just know that you will forever be in my heart & my thoughts!! I Love You So Much!!!

  8. Tomorrow will be a week since we laid you to rest(Wednesday), This still feels unreal to me. I am so sorry I could not save you, but I really tried. I guess God wanted you with him, Mark Alan & Momma instead of here on earth. I know you are at peace now. Just know I will always love you my little sister.

  9. It has only been almost a month since we lost you, I still can’t believe it is true. I will always miss and love you by baby sister!! Stephana

  10. Have been thinking about you all day today, its been 2months today that you had to leave us. Mark, Andrew & the boys miss you so very much, but you are always in their hearts. Just know I’ve kept my promise to you!! There is not a day that goes by that I don’t miss you!! Love You Baby Sis!!

  11. It has been 3 months today that God called you home. I think about you every day. I just wished I could have helped you. Rest in peace my little sister. I love & miss you very much!!
