    We are so very sorry for your loss. We were blessed to have the opportunity to meet Renee this past October and we know how special she and her family are. Renee was a hero in how she endured the many physical and mental challenges of ALS with such a good attitude, dignity, grace and keeping her sense of humor. If there is any consolation, it is that she is not suffering in her new eternal life. During her lifetime she had the voice of an angel and now is her family’s guardian angel. We are blessed to have met her and had the opportunity to get to know her.
