Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry for your loss, but with all the happy times and the wonderful memories you forged with this beautiful woman, I know you will eventually find a sense of peace after her passing and I pray for that for all of you, her family and her friends.

You see, while I never met *Aunt Rene*, she will live on in my thoughts forever and when I think of her a smile will cross my face and I will laugh and shout out AUNT RENE!!! As Patty's husband Jonathan, when she would call the house for Patty it was always an event in the house...*AUNT RENE'S* ON THE PHONE!!! Oh the laughs, the stories, the love she would share....I will miss that, but I will never forget.

I wish I could be there with you, but please remember you and *Aunt Rene* are in my thoughts and prayers.

Aunt Irene was a saving Grace for me in my childhood for many years. She was always laughing and mostly happy all the time. I remember how fast she walked, it was hard to keep up with her energy. She will always be in my heart. I will always remember her for the Love & Joy she gave to me & so many others. One of a Kind, she was my idol.
