When I went down to bed she was still struggling, yet I know was strong in faith. My heart broke as I thought of her battle and how she stood without wavering.
I leaned over and kissed her face, took my nose and touched hers and told her it was ok if she was tired and wanted to go home.
She had always told me of a place in heaven that she would meet Jesus when she prayed. There was a stream that was running that had rocks lining it. She told me that she would usually meet Jesus on a large rock, under a tree, at that stream.
After I told her that if she was tired I understood and that we would be alright, I said for her to go to her rock and that I’ll meet her there when I get to heaven.
I laid next to my bride of 31 years, held her hand and just listened and watched as she was sleeping and at peace. At 3am I noticed her respiration change. At 5am I just knew she was hovering over the bed looking at me. I looked up, told her I loved her, and told her that I would see her by the rock. At 5:04am, she released her last breath on earth, and I’m sure met with her Jesus (who she desperately loved) on that rock by the stream.
I miss you my best friend, and I’m not upset you went home. You fought fiercely in faith and never wavered!
I’ll meet you at the stream, on the rock, under the tree.
I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU HORRIBLY!
There are no earthly words to describe my vacuum.
I will heal, and I’ll see you soon!
JESUS….thank you for blessing me with 31 1/2 years with your magnificent GIANT, a true GENERAL, your baby girl! I am honored.
See you on the rock Rhonda Jeanne!!

Rhonda is a river of faith and beauty flowing from Jesus and the rock of a true faithful husband here on earth and now a lovely bride of our lord and savior in heaven.
Missed but never forgotten! ❤️
You have always been my spiritual Father and Mother. I love you and my prayers are with you. I still remember the day we went “tech” shopping and she banned us from ever doing that again.
Love and prayers to you to the family.

We love you.
Pastor, I am in tears. Tears of sadness and love at the same time. I’m sad she is gone, as we all are missing her, but, also, your sharing and letting me feel your love for your wonderful wife and your time together. Thank you for my tears and your sharing your feelings. Love you! Arlene
