Rest in Peace Fonda
Deep condolences to her family and friends I met her once and recall she was the “prettiest” of the family.
Fonda, I love and miss you so much. I was so proud to be your sister in law and so excited to reconnect with you after 20+ years apart. Thank you for loving my brother like you did. I will always remember you 2 together and the impact you left with me as a child and a teenager. Thank you for always having something lovely to say to me and to Nathan. Your kind spirit made such an impression on him when we all got to spend time together before our wedding. I look forward to the day we reconnect once again - this time in heaven where we can sit on a porch, sip sweet tea, and talk about flamingos and Elvis. I love you always.
I am so sorry for your loss,Fonda was a precious lady,loving cousin.I can remember when we came to the Phillips family reunion a few years ago she reached up and gave my youngest son Toby a great big peck on the cheek.Fonda will be greatly missed.
I was so sad to hear of Fonda’s passing. We were good friends many years ago when we had our babies at the same time. I loved her. She was always laughing and fun to be with. My son in law passed with COVID last week. I hate COVID.
My granddaughter and I always searched Fonda out when we went to Walmart. I was her “over $100.00 shopper”” then we would have a good laugh. We would share our jellies that we made with each other. We love and will miss Fonda very much.
Fonda will truly be missed, she was one of the good ones.
My sympathies to Fonda's family and friends. I count myself blessed to have known her.
So sorry for your loss
