Treated Robert on multiple occasions over many years and I always remembered his enthusiasm for walks with Claire so long as it concluded with a reward. ICE CREAM! A delightful couple to have known and treated.

Bob and I worked together for 30+ years at Polaroid. He was a great friend and a true gentleman. I have one of his wood carvings and think of him every time I look at it. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

Dear Claire ,
I was deeply saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. He was not only a talented wood carver, but also a good boss at Polaroid, where he worked with my late husband Rich.
My sympathies to you and your family. May our husbands enjoy each other’s company in heaven.

I was a Hospice Volunteer for Mr. Reney. He was such a gentleman who loved his family so very much. It was a privilege to meet Mr. Reney.

Dear Mrs. Reney, Lisa, and all the Reney Family, I am sorry to learn of Mr. Reney’s passing. I have wonderful memories of joining your family for camping weekends, trips to different malls, and days at craft fairs. In my memory, Mr. Reney is sitting in a lawn chair on the beach at Maple Park and carving a bird (and neatly collecting all his wood shavings). One time, my mother sent a “surprise bread” with me for the weekend at Maple Park. Catching on that I was not a fan of zucchini, Mr. Reney waited until the ride home to ask me to thank my mother for the zucchinin bread. I think he was tickled to be a part of my mother’s ruse to trick me into eating zucchini. I am lucky to have had the you and your family as such a big part of my childhood. I will rememer Mr. Reney fondly. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all. Love, Julie Casey
