    My daughter, a high school senior at Ashley, came to know and love Miss Renee. She would come home almost daily telling us of the courage and fight Renee had as she continued to work. My daughter cried all night on learning about her passing. Our love and prayers are with the family at this sad time. God Bless you all.

    Ms. Renee worked hard. She had an "I Can Do" attitude that inspired those that she worked around. My condolences to her family. Her determined mindset is a quality I will never forget.
