To the Rice family: I just learned of Rene's passing and was shocked as we all lived for years in the same community on 19th Avenue (Mr. & Mrs. Rice; Rene's siblings: (Roxanna, Baby Roy and Cathy). Over the years my brother would keep me abreast to the occurrences in our old neighborhood because we were ALL like one big family. My prayers go out to all of the remaining family members...
