I spent so many good times growing up with Aunt Rene. She had a huge heart and took such good care of us all. I am so thankful for the big part she played in my family's lives.
I took care of Irene for a short time at Pekin Manor & we talked about everyone we knew in common. She was a special lady.
My heartfelt sympathy and prayers to the family, May your hearts be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times you shared together as you celebrate a life blessed and well lived. Psalms 90:10
