  1. Ronna, my dear sister and friend. I praise and thank our precious Jesus Christ for all we have shared together – so many wonderful and amazing family happenings but also some very difficult times. We had both laughter and sorrow. You were my trusted friend and between you and our brother Bob, plus our dear Dad and Mom, you all helped to shape and guide my life. Most importantly, that I came to know Jesus Christ as my Savior!! I will miss you so very much. Your kindness to me – you taught me how to cut out paper dolls, color in color books, write upside down and backwards, bought me a complete cowgirl outfit including boots and took me to Ed and Joe’s on 103rd Street in Chicago for Green River soda, plus Donnels Lake swimming weekends, and buying $3 dollar blouses on our shopping trips. ALSO chocolate covered orange sticks!! So many memories!!! I love you dear sister and one day, I can look forward to our reunion in Heaven with our loved ones!

  2. We are so sorry for your loss and are continually thinking of you and that great gal who was such a pleasure to have as a friend.

  3. I have fond memories of Fred and Rona and their sons getting together with my family for visits.
    Every Sunday after church if was Dunkin Donuts and coffee, unless we really lucked out and went to Fred’s and Rona’s house. Rona was a terrific cook. The Radestocks are in my prayers.
