I worked with Renee very closely as she trained me in legal procedures. I worked as a paralegal for 10 years and owe it all to her. She was one of the nicest ladies I have ever met. She will be missed. My sincerest sympathies to Nicole and the family.

Renee was a beautiful soul and a very talented lady. During my time in the Army 1966-1968 we worked together professionally to provide musical entertainment locally in Columbia, and we were also close friends. She had a beautiful voice and brilliant sense of humor. Renee brought joy into every life she touched.
