Renee's passion for love, life and laughter will always be with me. We shared a love of horses and she could always brighten my day with her wicked sense of humor. A few months ago Renee told me that "Old friends are the Best." I will miss you my dear friend and yes, "Old friends are the best."

To Stephanie, Rick and Carson. So sorry for loss. I will truly miss the once or twice a year I would see Renee. She was a giving and caring person. She loved to tell me about how Carson was in sports or his pod casts over the years. She was a character who’s presences will be missed and she will be in our hearts forever. Jeff and Carol Berry
