We were blessed to have shared part of our walk through life with Rene. She was a special person who will not be forgotten. She never forgot anyone's birthday or anniversary and always sent cards for these occasions. Rejoice in the memories you have. God bless her memory. From Pastor Harlan and Barb Stutheit
