    So sorry for your loss. Roni took my mom to card parties after she couldn’t drive. When I took Mom to a fish fry @ Prince of Peace and to Lake Anna for a concert, we would see Roni with the Pleasant Pointe group! “Life is changed, it is not ended.”

    Deepest sympathies to Caroline and Sandy. I have fond memories of the times Roni welcomed me into her home.
    Love from Jeanette
