“Do not be sad for me, I have been so fortunate to have lived the life I did. Celebrate what I have accomplished and what we all did together. Take nothing for granted and live your life with enthusiasm and laughter.”
Rene passed away peacefully this morning, October 17th, in the hands of family. Her brave fight continued until the very end, keeping with the approach she had her whole life. Her smile, love of life and competitive spirit will be etched in our memories forever.
The support we have received through this past year has been humbling and provided us both the strength we needed to endure the pain of the past year. We can all begin the healing process now and all should take comfort with the fact she lived her life to the absolute fullest and that she passed away at peace with her world. May she watch over us all now.
