Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., announced the heartbreaking news on Friday that his beloved wife, Rhonda, has passed away. The announcement has led to an overwhelming wave of condolences for the libertarian figure.

“Yesterday, my high school sweetheart, the love of my life for over 35 years, the loving mother of our four children, the smartest, kindest woman I ever knew, my beautiful and wise queen forever, Rhonda went to Heaven. Thank you for your prayers for our family in this difficult time,” Massie shared on Twitter.

Massie also posted several photos of Rhonda, highlighting her achievements as their high school’s valedictorian and her impressive mechanical engineering degree from MIT. However, he did not disclose the cause of her death.

Outpouring of Support and Condolences

The announcement prompted a flood of condolences online. Senator Mike Lee, R-Utah, expressed his sympathies: “This is truly heartbreaking. I didn’t know Rhonda well, but I know her husband. And based on that alone, and on what you’ve told me about her, I know she was an amazing woman. Sharon and I mourn with you today and will keep you in our prayers.”

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, where Massie serves as a board member, also paid tribute to Rhonda. Daniel McAdams, the Institute’s Director, conveyed deep sorrow over her passing.

“Today all people of goodwill, and especially the pro-peace and pro-liberty community, come together with our thoughts and prayers for the Massie family on the sad news of the death of Thomas Massie’s wife Rhonda yesterday,” McAdams said.

Daniel McAdams continued, “It is with a heavy heart and tear-filled eyes that I write these words, imagining the pain felt by the large Massie family, which includes children and grandchildren.”

“Thomas Massie is not only a Board Member of the Ron Paul Institute, he is a friend and mentor to me and a good friend to Dr. [Ron] Paul. We both pray the family is granted strength and that our Lord will heal their sorrow,” McAdams added.
