Condolence & Memory Journal

Rena was my boss when she and I worked together at Sally's Grill. She was a sweetheart. I love her and miss her God bless the family and friends that were fortunate enough to have known her.

I had the pleasure of meeting and sitting with "Miss" Rena at one of the Grace
Memorial Luncheons back in the summer. Jo Marie McInnis and I always
enjoy Grace's luncheons and our visit with her was better than the food and
ambiance which is hard to beat. The minister came along and gave her
some information on someone's impending Funeral Service and when I
asked if she had just lost someone she smiled and said ..."no I am planning
my own funeral." Both Jo and I had heard of her all our adult lives but never
met her. The short time I was with her I just knew she was a masterpiece of
God's and someone whom all would benefit simply by knowing. Really I cannot
feel sad because she seemed to be looking forward to the trip! I know you
as family feel sad but I can tell you she expressed love for you all and did
miss her husband. She went home for Christmas! It hardly gets better than
that except for those left behind. Treasure your sweet memories.

Rena is an example of how one can pull herself up by her bootstraps with pride and dignity. She did not let age, illness or death rob her of that. I'm glad we had a good visit before God took her home. Rest in peace, Rena. Love, Brenda
