It was Renee's passing that prompted us to make this website, which has brought us back together. I know she is smiling down on us.

Renee was a wild child (even her parents will tell you that) but she had a big heart and loved her son without end. My favorite memory with Renee happened when we were around 13 yrs old. We were conned into painting fence posts at their farm. By the time we were done we were way past a tan and well on to beet red. Did I forget to mention that we were wearing BLACK BATHING SUITS!!! We always laughed about that. In 2005 she gave me the start of my tattoo on my back. Last August 2008, I had it embelished by another artist. Renee will always be with me with her art. She was the spark that started a wildfire of fun for the rest of us.
Love and Peace Nee--

One of my memories of Renee (I have many) was in 6th grade at Camp Livingston. We did the talent show, she was sitting in a chair lipsyncing and I was dancing around her all to the tune of "One Night in Bangkok." I had never been so embarrassed, but Renee didn't care she was having fun. I look back fondly on that now, because she taught me to laugh at myself and have fun. Thanks, 'Nay!

I can remember a slumber party at Lara Duke's house right before jr high where we all circled around Renee' and she educated us on the birds and the bees. Thanks to her, the EO Muncie girls weren't clueless when we got to the JR High!

I met Renee when I was 11 or 12...we took private art lessons from the same teacher, needless to say we had a great time together. I also was with Renee for my first concert (Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, and Sawyer Brown). We had a blast and I don't even like country...she could make anything fun. Even though we did not keep in touch as the years passed by, she will be missed. Thanks for all the great times Renee!

I always thought Renee was so cool, she always seemed so much more mature than the rest of us. It is so sad to lose someone so full of life. May she rest in peace and her family be comforted in their loss. I think we are all blessed for having known Renee on this earth.

Wow, I remember being very good friends with Renee back in E.O. Muncie elementary school....I remember going to her house and tubing while her dad drove the motor boat....I also remember she and I writing poetry and drawing a lot of pictures (which I still have)of Garfield and other fun cartoon characters. I can't believe she is gone...what a total trip...God Bless her family and I know she is in good hands with our Lord in heaven.
