Today I just received notice of the passing of Renee. She and I met at Mt. Ida Jr. College in Newton Centre, MA and have been friends, ever since. She was the Godmother to my youngest son, Christopher. Although I'm happy that I was able to visit her before she passed, words cannot express my heartbreak.
To the family, I pray that the words to this song may give you peace, comfort and hope:
"Say the name, of Jesus, Say the name of Jesus, Say the name, so Precious,
No other name I know, That can calm your fears, dry your tears and wipe away your pain
When you don't know what else to pray, When you can't find the words to say,
Say the name Jesus. . .Jesus. . .Jesus--when you don't know what else to pray
When you can't find the words to say; when you can't make it through another
day--Say the Name!"
Be encouraged, for weeping may endure for a night; but joy will come in the morning!

So sorry to hear of Renee’s Passing. I met Renee at TSA in May 2002 . We became friends instantly! She was a breath of fresh air and always shined her light. She treated my children like they were her own. She would often surprise them with one of her beautiful cakes on their birthday or simply call to check on them. She will be missed. RIP Renee!
Condolences to the Dewberry Family.

I was sad to learn of the passing of Renee. I had reached out to her days before her passing. She always had a kind word and a big bright smile! She loved family and her hobbies. Gone too soon although we know God does not make mistakes. May she rest in peace as she was happily reunited with her dad.

I'm so very saddened to find out about the passing of Renee . I knew something wasn't right when I texted her for her birthday like we do every year and didn't hear anything back. I first met her in 1991. She was my coworker and good friend at NPIC. She helped plan the surprise baby shower and made the delicious cake for my vey first child at work. A memory I have cherished for years.
Prayers and love sent to the family! A beautiful soul has gone on to be with the Lord.

Although I didn't have the privilege of spending a lot of time with Reneelis, I remember meeting, and being immediately drawn to her by her smile and warmth. My wife, Rosalie, remembers her as a kind, sweet and loving person who is going to be missed by all of us. Rest in peace, Reneelis.

I met Renee at the Miss Prince George's Scholarship pageant in 2018.
I knew that she was related to Ms. Jen even before I was introduced to her because she was personable and possessed the most captivating smile.
We had a pleasant conversation and she raved about how the wonderful of a show that it was. That was an amazing day and I am glad to have met her.
Renee, may you rest in Him and know that you touched so many. Thank you for your sunny disposition. You will be missed.

Renee and I had wonderful conversations about two of her favorite talents, scrapbooking and knitting. She had plans of coming to California to teach me how to do scrapbooking. Her infectious smile and love for family will be missed.
My condolences to the entire Dewberry family!
