    CandleMy deepest thoughts and prayers for the family of Renelda. We were neighbors for a long time. Some of us would get together for pizza and enjoy visiting for an evening. She was such a sweet lady . She would come and i would make copies for her when she sent things and had a copy to keep for herself. But she had to give me change for them which i didn't want she was a very proud lady. I seen her the other day and had been gros. shopping and wasn't feeling very good . Well my dear neighbor no more pains I will miss seeing you but you are at rest. I am so glad to have known her and will remember her with lots of wonderful thoughts.

    Aaron and Milan and family - - I will never ever forget Renelda and her sweet parents. We lived above them for a while. They were so kind and thoughtful. I will miss, too, Reneldas letters to me. You all have my sympathy. Remember: Absent with the body - PRESENT WITH THE LORD!
