    Renee was a great friend and a wonderful mother. She has always been there for me no matter what. I am very upset that this happened and even more upset that i just found out a few days ago. I have missed the chance to pay my respects to a great person. I also want to let the children know that i am terribly sorry. If any family members of Renee read this, please post a comment with the information about where she has been buried. Or please e-mail me at I pray that someone with information reads this because i am lost and do not know where to turn for information. I have been calling every possible lead with no results. I just want to pay respect to my friend. Thank you
