    (To Renee) I wish I could do more to help in these times and I regret and wish I could have become a part of this family with you there. I know you will be at Isabella and I’s wedding in spirit to support us because you were a wonderful mom.
    (To the family) I mourne for your loss and hope that I can be of any help in some way. I’ve heard tons about Renee and know in my heart that she is truly in a better place and deserves to be there. She was an amazing, compassionate person and a hard worker for the people she took care of and loved. She will be missed dearly, but hopefully she comes to visit when me and Isabella get married, I know she wouldn’t miss it for the world <3

    I am so sorry for your loss. I will miss teasing Renee about her robo blocker when she’d come into TPM.
