    Tom and Family, Time with loved ones is precious. Rhonda was my best friend growing up. We did everything together and I will always cherish those memories. Loss is an unwelcomed guest in our lives. It is heavy and at times overwhelming. God will give you the grace to take one step forward and then another. My prayers surround you.

    Must share my complete shock in learning of Rhonda’s illness and premature death when my husband read her name, reading her name aloud. Our mutual sorrow is for everyone’s loss, plus this is my untold “old friendship” story that first began in the mid-1980’s. As mothers of our youngest children who attended Linda Slevin’s quickly-growing new day care, our paths happily met when we were hired to staff the third and last basement classroom of Our Lady, Queen of the America’s Church in Conneaut Lake, PA. The large crib-lined, two changing table nursery room housed all little “diapered-dears” until potty-trained and could eventually graduate to the preschool room.

    Our daily schedule included unstructured free play; an enjoyable, attention-expanding Circle Time of nursery rhymes, songs, etc.; followed by a teacher-led group activity, outdoor play or craft before lunch and nap time. Rhonda volunteered to change diapers, wash hands and faces, rock/walk crying babes so others could sleep, but she emphatically declared, “I DON’T DO CRAFTS!” I later found and gave her a small badge that contained her exact words.

    So now, imagine with me, our beloved Rhonda, keeping God’s littlest angels dry and clean, rocking and sweetly singing them to sleep with His favorite lullabies. Amen.
