So sorry to hear of Aunt Rena’s passing. Uncle Bill my heart understands what you are going through since I just lost Gary in August. Bill and Kelly it’s hard to lose your mom as I also know. Keep the memories close to your heart. I’ll always remember how much fun she was to dance with! Her mother was sure we’d shake the house down!
