Rhonda, what wonderful memories I will cherish from our childhood; growing up together as neighbors in Boiling Springs.  Your house was my second home and your parents were both so kind, loving and fun.  I will always remember your mom's smile and laugh. Hugs to you Rhonda and Christa, and families. May you find peace in this difficult time.  Sue Vrabel Zvorsky

Nancy was a delightful next door neighbor for many years, and I always enjoyed visiting with her.  In spite of the challenges she lived with, she kept a positive attitude and we had many laughs together.  She loved the  Lord and her family.  God bless each of them as they grieve their loss and remember the good times.
