Renee was like a sister. We both spent so many years working together. Renee always had something to share with me in conversation everyday, we would talk ,debate but not once in over 20yrs have had not 1 argument. Now that really something.
I've enjoyed life and you in it I will truly miss her.

I will always remember Renee as filled with life, love, and laughter. She had a big heart and made me feel welcome the minute I walked in the door at Willowbrook Mall. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. She will be missed!

Renee was my beautiful big sister. I will miss her but know she will finally feel peace and Godly happiness. She was amazing in her ability to remember her childhood. She will reunite with Mema who loved Renee so dear. Her earthly suffering is over and her bravery in difficulty will be a lasting legacy. Renee passed on the love she felt from Mema to beautiful Addy.

Love you sis and will miss you. Steve
