Not sure what to say?

I had no idea of Mr. Renes passing until after the services. I was so sad to hear this. I used to see Mr. Rene at the gym, and he would always talk about his grandchildren with such pride. It was so great to see him after so many years of not seeing him. He and his family were always so kind to me. My prayers are with Mrs. Gail, Jason, and Janet and his grandchildren.

Sending love and prayers. Renae will surely be missed ! I am so very sorry for your loss and wish I could be with you tomorrow to celebrate him.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May the promise in 1THESSALONIANS 4:14 comfort you and your family.
