I just wanted to pass on my deepest condolences to the Pierce family, Ronalda’s friends and teammates. I lost my mother to an aneurism 3 years ago next month, and I know how you must feel. It is one of the worst ways to lose someone that you care so deeply about.

I always think that she is in a better place and It is not for us to question.

I always think that I will be with my mother one day, and you will be with Ronalda again one day!! That keeps my spirits up. Although I never met Ronalda I am a huge fan of Florida State athletics and she will be in my heart and prayers forever. It will get better, let time work its course!!!!

Pat (Kennesaw, GA)
My prayers are with your family, friends and Florida State University as they try to get through this tragedy. God Bless.
