Rene was like my aunt. You don’t need to be blood to be family, and she was my family. I can’t say how much i miss you already. You and my pawpaw watch over donnie ray and all of us. You’re in a better place now. Gone but never forgotten. I love you

Truly at a loss for what to say. I can't outline just one memory, you and Donnie Ray were always there. You all were each others perfect other half. You're going to be missed dearly, but I can see Phil happy to be sharing this time with one of his dearest friends. I'm beyond sorry to you Donnie Ray, anything you need we're here for you please. We love you both, may God ease your pain and know that she's hanging out with Phil and looking after you, her love. God bless you, we love you.

Everytime I think of you I see your smile. I don't know why you were taken ,they say God takes His best.....and you were one of the best! You will be missed by so many Rene..I pray you and Phil watch over Donnie Ray......I don't think I've ever seen two people as in love with each other as you both were,best friends!You always took care of "daddy"...and he did "momma".....I loved how you both called each other that. Thank you for always being there for Dawn and Jason after Phil passed! I promise you we will be there for Donnie's a very sad day here.....but I know your smiling in "momma"

Joyce was so beautiful in every way. She had the most contagious laugh. I never saw her sad she was always full of fun and energy. Joyce was just plain fun to be with, She could hug you so tight and laugh. I loved her , and will miss her.
