Frances & Family, We are so sorry to hear about Reno.I will never forget the act of kindness that Reno and Faye had, when they let me and Victor stay at their house after we were married for a little while. Reno was quiet but also very kind, but loved to tease also. The thing I will remember most is how excited he got when he talked about skating and how good his grandkids were at it. He loved you very much Francis and his grandkids and his great grandkids. Hope hes in Heaven with Jamie and they are elated to see each other again. May God bring You and your family peace and comfort, but only joy when reminiscing of your dad from the past. Love You....Jan & Victor & Family

My deepest sympathy goes out to Frances, Faye , all the grandchildren , great grandchildren, cousins and loved ones. I know you will all miss Reno. He was a good ole soul. I remember him from when I was a child. Always though a lot of him. Enjoyed our times at Skate America. He loved skating and watching Bridget skate in competitions and her daughter Kaitlyn. I loved to make him laugh. I was blessed to know and love him. He will be missed. May the Lord give you all strength, peace and comfort at such a sad time in your lives. Love you all my dear cousins.
