    I met Rene when I was a caregiver for Miss Inez. After Miss Inez passed, I stayed in touch with Rene and visited his apartment often. I remember when he asked me to set up a trip for him to the Bahamas, but the cost was too much. He gave me a picture of Jesus which I still have. I hadn't talked to Rene for two years, but he was my friend and he will be missed. My condolences to the family for your loss.
