A Tribute To Ronalda Pierce
Ronalda Pierce

Brittney McMiller – Tifton Ga, 31794
I would just like to say that I’m sorry to hear about this horrible tragedy, I am keeping her family in my prayers, and I hope you are dealing with it better now. I want to let yall know it’s gonna be alright because she’s in God’s hands right now. So don’t worry to much about it, because ya’ll will soon meet again one day. To her sister Shanda, I know it’s hard to lose a sister and I have two of them and if I lose them I don’t know what I would do, so I can imagine how you are feeling right about now, but just keep your head up gurl, and if you feel like you need someone to talk to, you can always call me, you can get my phone number from my sister Chyteau “Rudy” Walker in Ashburn. Well, last but not least I want to say that I will miss you Ronalda and you will never be forgotten.(4sho!)

I feel for your whole family so much in this time of pain. I too have Marfan syndrome and my father passed away from the disease, it is a shame that this had to happen.

Our prayers are with the Pierce family, Ronalda’s friends, and her FSU family during this difficult time. May God bless and strengthen everyone.

My name is Jakila King. I live in Cordele, Georgia and the last time I saw you was in Atlanta, when you guys played LSU. Just so you no I was cheering you on 100% and I also remember when it was your senior-year at Turner high and you guys played Tifon and you had them headphones around your neck. I said that is the coolest tall girl I have ever seen. I’m tall myself and I always be getting picked at about my hieght, but she made me feel good about being tall. I just wish you and your family the best and remember one thing if you don’t have no friends you have a friend in jesus!!!

To the family,
May God bless you and keep you always. I live in Oregon and did not know your daughter. But, like you, I lost a child and it was one of the hardest things to handle. God got me through it and he will get you through too. Keep believing, keep strong and thank God for all things. You’ll never forget your lovely daughter. She was a gift to you. Now believe that she is in a better place, to never know pain or sorrow again.

God Bless

Our family will be praying for yours as you deal with this devastating loss. My daughter just finished her freshman year, too, so “there but for the grace of God, go I”. The Lord will strengthen you, as only HE can in the days ahead. She will be missed at FSU.

Our condolences extend to her basketball family, too, as they grieve the loss of a good friend and teammate.

Circle City Seminole Club – Jim Perillo (CO-President) – Indianapolis, Indiana
As a member of the FSU Seminole Family, we feel a deep and defined loss of a very bright and young woman that exemplified our fine univeristy. Our hearts and prayers go out to Ronalda’s immediate family and her extended family, the Women’s Basketball Team. No words will be adequate to express our feelings.

Stephany Raines – Atlanta, GA
I would like to extend my condolences to the family of Ronalda and to the Florida State Women’s Basketball Team. May God give you all strength and guidance.

Your friend in Christ,

My name is Aisha Bonets and I play basketball for Hampton University in Virginia. I never knew or heard of Ronalda Pierce until her passing, but from one basketball player to another I am truly sorry for the loss of the ladies of FSU’S teammate and friend. My prayers also go out to the family of Ronalda Pierce. I pray that you all will be able to stay strong and believe on through her loving memory, I am sure that she is truly missed. My heart goes out to all who are mourning. God Bless and may God hold his wings over all of you.

As an FSU alum and the father of a 12U AAU girls basketball player I feel that I have something in common with your family. But I can’t imagine what you must be going through at this time. I can only hope that you can think back about how much fun you and your daughter had together as she came up through the basketball ranks. Watching her excel at the tournaments, the fun times at the hotel, and the joys and frustrations on the car rides home. I am sure you had a great time together and nobody will ever be able to take that away from you. Me and my family are hoping the best for your family.

Joe LeSerra – Tallahassee, FL
My thoughts and prayers are with the Pierce family right now in their time of grievance. As a student at Florida State and a huge basketball fan, I just have to say that she will be missed dearly. God blessed her into our lives, yes it was a short time, but it was the time meant for her to be here to touch us. I just pray that God will continue to bless your family and lead you to better days. All of the Seminole faithful are with you during your time of grief. Just remember Ronalda got to do what she loved in life and that was play basketball.

To the Family of Ms. Pierce,
I am so sorry for your loss. I know words cannot help, but my thoughts, prayers, and love are with you. When someone passes on at such a young age it’s especially hard to accept, but I know God’s love will comfort you. Sometimes its hard for me to understand why things like this happen. When I begin to feel such sadness for this sort of loss I think of Jesus and what He endured here as a man and somehow I am comforted because I realize that no one, not even Jesus, is promised a long life here on earth. That’s what our Lord gives us in heaven, eternal life with Him.

My Love, Tiffany Meek

Ken Warner – Gainesville, Florida
