  18. Growing up, Rene was like a second mom to me. Whenever Jeff and I would head out for whatever mischief we could find, Rene’s last words were always “be careful”. Twenty years later, that tradition carries on with my own children. It’s funny, everytime I tell my own kids to “be careful” I thought of her. Her words will continue to live on and protect those who she loved.

  19. Gloria, John, Ashleigh, Amber & Angel: We were so sorry to hear of your loss. It’s never easy when you lose a loved one. May you find the strength to cope with your loss through God, your family and friends. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  20. Gloria, John, Ashleigh, Amber and Angel We were so sorry to hear of your loss. You’re all in our thoughts and prayers.

  21. I wish I would’ve called Aunt Renie more often. She was beautiful at the service. I especially enjoyed playing badminton with her when I was younger. I mailed a sympathy card to Uncle Nick. It was nice to see my cousins again. I wish everyone well. I read the obituary. I didn’t realize that Aunt Renie was 75! She didn’t look it to me! Take care and best wishes to all. Love, Leeann Mraovich Leeann Mraovich Aug 10, 2010 State College, PA
