  1. With deepest sympathy, much love and prayers. Hoping that you can soon replace sadness with the many happy memories.
    Sincerely

  2. I am so sorry to hear this news. It has been decades since I last recall seeing Aunt Renee. It’s sad how time, distance and life can draw us away from the people we should always be connected to. Looking at Aunt Renee’s picture, immediately brings back days of long ago. Aunt Renee was always warm, gentle and loving and I remember, always interested to hear what was going on with “you”. Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you and may the God of creation, who is always faithful, comfort you.

  3. Aunt Reenie was a very very special person – as Eric said, she always wanted to know how you were doing and what was going on in your life. We were lucky enough to have had her in our life from an early age. She and Uncle Paul moved south to GA which limited visits but when they could bring the clan up north to Sprague family reunions they did. She and Uncle Paul were SO proud of their children, both as athletes and as people! And then the grandchildren joined the group and the love she and Uncle Paul had for my cousins expanded. I feel blessed that Mike was able to bring Aunt Reenie to our reunion in 2016. She and mom spent hours reminiscing about years past in Syracuse and Ithaca. Thank you to “y’all “ for taking such good care of Aunt Reenie over these past years… she felt your love and devotion and you showed your children the beauty of love for family.🙏🏽❤️
