What a terrible tragedy! I only knew Renee briefly, but what a wonderful girl! I was speechless when I heard the news. Sad her time was so short with us. May she rest in God's peace!

Renee is an amazing friend, daughter, and sister. She will always be in my heart no matter what. I will never be able to forget the memories I was able to share with her. When I found out about Renee, I was at a lost for words, I could not believe what had happened. She will be missed by many in this world and will never be forgotten.

When i found out i was at loss of words. Watching tv you hear about this type of thing all the time, but you never really think it will happen to one of your friends. i will never forget racing Renee to english class. (she always won) or seeing her at my work during the summer. she always had a smile on her face and knew how to put one on mine. Although her body is gone her sprit lives on in all of us. Rest in Peace Renee you have done you job well!

Renee is one of those girls that I will never forget. Her gorgeous face matched with an even more beautiful personality is what makes her stand out from all other people. I grew close to Renee in freshman year and will never forget the memories. She always made me laugh until I cried and she could always make me feel better if I was upset. I believe that Renee had fulfilled her purpose here on earth, which is why God called her back home. So, I can't be selfish and wish that she were still with me when she's being rewarded in heaven with God. She definitely had an impact on me and all other people she met. Dearest family of Renee, I am terribly sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers and in my heart. Rest in peace, Renee Krato.

Renee was an angel, she was smart, beautiful, and funny. she would always start laughing about nothing and i would join in with her. I'd say "what are we laughing about?" and she would respond eyes squinted still laughing saying "I have no idea!". she touched my life in more ways than that. and for that you should be proud. i love her and miss her very much. She will live on in my heart with that unmistakeable smile and personality.
