We are very sorry to hear the loss of Onda. Onda was a very kind lady, with a warms smile and a warm hello when she would see me or Keith. She would ask about Keith when he was going through his cancer and praying for him. We will miss seeing her and her smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God bless you all.
