I hasten to extend my condolences on Rene's passing. She was a remarkable woman. May the peace of God be with her and her family.

Rene, or Miss Rene as I called her, was the most amazing woman I have met in a very long time. I was Miss Renes home health aide for the last couple of years. We just clicked. Our relationship was much more than the typical client/aide. During our time together we shared many similar stories about how our lives brought us to where we were now. We often swapped stories about our daughters, whom we both lost about the same time. She would tell me about her adventures with her husband and her business. I would sit down, enthusiastically waiting for every exciting word. Her favorite place to sit, was the enclosed porch.
Rest easy my dear sweet lady
