Missing You Madly, Dear Rona

Rona Newton-John

I originally posted this three years ago when my dear, wonderful, often "partner in crime" Rona Newton-John passed away on Memorial Day 2013 from a diagnosis of brain cancer.

The time between diagnosis to her passing was a matter of only weeks. Fortunately, Rona did not suffer during that time.

I miss her laugh and smile all the time.

Last year, Olivia Newton-John shared a painting of Rona (see above) by her longtime bff Pat Farrar. It makes me smile to see Rona's spirit captured so beautifully.

My dear, beautiful Rona. You are instantly missed.  But will smile in my heart forever.

Lifting a vodka martini in your memory today.

"Goody, goody."
