Judy and Jeff. So Sorry we just found out about Rena's passing. You have our deepest sympathy. She was such a great friend to my dad and mom but especially to my dad John Engler who passed away in January. So many fun memories they all had as my dad and Bob were best friends but Rena and my mom and dad stayed great friends after Bob's passing. I will always remember how kind and friendly Rena was to everyone. She loved life and always had a kind word to say. I do know that she is with the good lord and right now they are all having the best time in heaven! Sincerely Bob and Kathy Kobert (John's youngest daughter)
