  3. Condolences to your family. We miss and love you Rhonda.
    I wrote a poem for you and wanted your family to have it.

    Just a getting it

    Push on, like a locomotive that was her name

    Never needing a pat or any claim to fame.

    Straight and to the point, a kind of hardness in her veins.

    But if she loved you, you wouldn’t want for anything just the same.

    A love for animals that cheered her when blue.

    A protector of honor, pride she held true.

    When the battle came, a fighter you were, we knew.

    Than the conductor called your name and away you flew.

    Hearts in hand, here we all sit.

    But we all got to know she’s in heaven, just a getting it!

    Friend and Author,

    Gail A Echols

  7. Rhonda I will miss you dearly my friend! Lots of good memories doing the rodeo, u taught me alot about rodeo and life. When you met my daughter Kandas Graham y’all connected immediately and at some point she started calling you kangaroo, can’t remember why but it stuck all the way to her adult years. You have left me with lots of memories to look back on, and I’m so glad I got to be a part of your life. Go rest in peace, Olive Juice. My condolences to the family
