I first found you on Wordpress Rhonda. Your family's story and grief resonated with me so much. I think of you often, since you went ahead. I send love to your family when I think of you.

I often think of Rhonda and her loved ones left behind. I hope that you have all been wrapped up in love and kindness are so many devastating losses. I followed Rhonda's blog on Wordpress and the loss of Rhonda, was a confronting thing for myself, as I too lost a child to suicide.
Sending you all love on this day of remembrance.

It has now been a year since we lost my niece, Rhonda Gay Sellers Elkins, to a serious condition from which she could not overcome. We should never stop talking about this condition and trying to find a cure for it. There are so many types of mental illness. Let us strive to bring it out in the open even more than we are doing it now. If we cannot find a cure for it right now, let us find

I am in absolute shock right now! I am in such shock! I just went to look at Rhonda's blog which I've done in the last few months now and then wondering why she hasn't written! So today I just started searching to see if she had started the new one where she was going to make a place for everyone who lost someone to suicide only to find out this very sad devastating news!
As I've been trying to pull

To Rhonda's family, I want to let you know that you are still in many thoughts and prayers. I did not know Kaitlyn, but I was in her medical school, and I was strongly impacted by her death and Rhonda's subsequent book and blog entries. Their lives, though tragically short, will have longer lasting effects than they could have imagined on this world. Their stories have influenced so many, including myself, in such meaningful ways, and have had a chain

Rhonda was a follower of my blog, and through that we corresponded a few times, and via email. Like everyone, I am deeply shocked and saddened that she has now followed Kaitlyn. All I can hope, is that she is now at peace, no longer tormented by the overwhelming grief that she simply could not bear.

To Allyn and Stephanie, our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Allyn and families, I am truely shocked. Just read about Rhonda in the paper. Words cannot express the tragedy you and the families have endured. I loved her also, so sorry. But she is with God, Jesus and her precious angel in heaven. I pray for you and the families. It I know is not an easy time. When my father died, one thing I held close to was Foot prints in the sand poem. Phyllis Williams gave me a

Sorry it has taken me so long to post this, the sadness overwhelms me still to this day..19 months, 85 weeks, I lost my son to suicide. Those first months are such a blur, I don't remember how I came upon Rhonda's website, but as I read her words they so closely related to my thoughts and feelings as well. Rhonda put it so much more eleoquently than I could have. It became the place I visited each day. I

Thank you for the gifts you left for other families who struggle with this terrible tragedy. I purchased your book after losing my daughter and it taught me so much. I was so grateful for it. I'm keeping your family in my prayers.
