James and Rhonda’s love story began more than 47 years ago. Their lives together were filled with joy, love and laughter. Together they raised 3 children and made them a priority in their lives. They were always present and made sure their kids knew they were special and loved. No matter the situation they seemed to make the best out of it and made life fun. Together was their favorite place to be. James and Rhonda enjoyed taking road trips to Florida, Colorado and Georgia every year. They loved sitting outside in their backyard talking about anything and everything while enjoying each other’s company. You rarely found one without the other. The legacy they leave their children and grandchildren is the true definition of loyalty and love. They are together now in heaven just as they were together on earth and they wouldn’t want it any other way.
