It´s inconceivable to me that I´ll never hear you laugh, watch you greet our kids and grandchildren with glee and unconditional love. No one person will be able to fill your shoes, not at home, not at work and not at church... it will collectively take all of us to carry on your many legacies. All our sympathies out to your sweet family, your brother and sisters, the kids, Milo, your church family and your passion for transportation, the Gulick family of co workers. You are celebrated and grieved by many.

I met Rhonda at our TCA sponsored benchmarking group first in Nashville, TN. She was a warm and welcoming person who made people feel comfortable. I learned quite a bit from her in the couple of years I met her and was impressed with her sharp intellect and her openness to share and learn from the others in our group. She will be greatly missed and I know not easily replaced. My condolences to her family and work family at Gulick.

I met Rhonda through the Truckload Carriers Association, and her involvement in peer group benchmarking. She was a wonderful person, and a great mentor for me. My condolences to her family and her Gulick family. She will be deeply missed.

I met Rhonda through Truckload Carriers of America and she was always a joy to be around. She warmly welcomed me into the group and we frequently found ourselves seated nearby at meetings or dinners. Always one for a good laugh she will be notably absent from our meeting later this month.

I worked with Rhonda as part of two Benchmarking Groups in Trucking. What a joy to be around. Smart as a whip & always willing to share what she knew. She remembered things that were only important to you, always making you feel special. What a great lady, a great human being, a great trucker. Our groups are better because of you Rhonda!! Thank you....

We've been sister/friends for 47 years. I can't imagine life here with-out you. You meant so much to me that words can not express. I love you and will truly miss you. Until we meet again you're in my heart.
