Farewell to a great woman who we only knew for 4 months but loved as if we'd known her forever.
She was my Mom's roommate at Fulmers, and her new best friend.
I think my Mom will miss her more than anybody.
God bless ya Rhoda... you made the world a better place.
Love, Roy, Amber, and "the boys" Ewan and Gavin

We will miss you, Aunt Rhoda. I will always cherish the beautiful purple afghan that you lovingly crocheted for me during my recovery. May you rest in peace with the Angels in Heaven. Love, Lindsay and Doug xoxo
