Grandma Rhonda

My heart goes out to Sydney's godparents Greg and Jessica and his family. His mom, who we call Grandma Rhonda, passed away unexpectedly this weekend. She was such a sweet woman, and always talked so excitedly about how one day she would be a grandma. She treated Sydney like she was her own granddaughter-she always included Sydney in their family events (including an Easter Egg hunt last Easter) and even brought Sydney presents for her birthday and Christmas. She was a very thoughtful and caring woman and we're so lucky to have had Grandma Rhonda as an honorary Grandma.
I remember talking to her at Greg and Jessica's wedding rehearsal dinner about how proud she was of her Gregory and how she was so excited to have another daughter. She adored her three kids so much, you could just tell by the way she talked and how her face lit up.
We will miss Grandma Rhonda very much.
Greg and Jessica-we love you guys and we're sending you big hugs.

Here are a few pictures I found of Grandma Rhonda:

Oh no, Stacy. I am so sorry to hear about your friend's mom. They are in my thoughts.
