Memories

Prayers for Ronda's wife, family, and friends. I met Ronda at an ASL retreat while I was working/living in Bemidji, MN. When I realized that SHE was THE 'RJ' from 'Winning Sounds Like This' I was starstruck! Haha. We chatted and became acquaintances, she invited me to the family farm as we both grew up small-town farm girls. I was so saddened to find out about her illness and battle with cancer, though I was so proud of her inspiring video and am blessed to have known her. Grateful to know she is at peace! *hugs*

Ronda sure was a wonderful person. She and I met at Gallaudet. We played flag football as opponents and teammates. She will be missed. Much love and hugs to the family.

Memories

Ronda lived life full of joie de vivre, knowing how to stay in the present, having a smile for everyone and an adventure at every turn. She shared this legacy worldwide with her travels and in a short 34 years time, touched more lives than someone twice her age. I had the privilege of knowing her as a teammate on the 2005 US Deaf National Team. My heart goes out to her wife, parents, siblings and close friends who will gather tomorrow in her memory. She left us all too soon. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4, NIV)
