Dearest Aunt Renee,
You will never be gone from us . You will live on,forever, in our hearts .
I will always smile when I recall being 4 years old and doing a ballet for you, I thought I was a prima-ballerina , so I closed my eyes when so did my twirl. I hit my face on my bed post, knocked out my 2 front teeth and was called "toothless " for the next 3 years when my adult teeth began to sprout !!! Please hug all our Angels that you joined in Heaven.
We Love You,
Mare, Ron and Meghan 🙏🏻❤️🌹
