Tell me Story
I used to live in a funeral home as a night attendant when I was going to school. I had a small apartment. It was a dark stormy night and the bell rang. I heard something opening and closing the doors downstairs. I called the guy who lived behind my apartment. It ended up being a homeless man who broke into the building.
The funnies thing about her story is that my Uncle Mike worked at the same funeral home – around the same time. His wife also lived in the funeral home apartment. That is how my Uncle Mike and Aunt Dani met. Which is ironic and very relatable.
Overall Rhonda is SO kind, has passion, and is living out her true happiness of baking. Fun fact Biscotti is good with both wine and beer! Check out her website, and follow her on Instagram!
