I'm so sorry for your loss. She stopped out for a visit not long ago and we reminisced and laughed about growing up in the same neighborhood in New Castle. I'm so glad I had the time to spend with her that day.

It was a privilege knowing the Wagners and Rhonda always impressed us with her strength of character and ability. She was a no-nonsense, yet sweet lady. We skied with them and enjoyed our friendship with them.
