Welcome Home Renee

Your spirit swells in my heart.
I can't catch my breath.
Aching fills my body like a deep longing or loss.
Tears slip down my cheeks on to my keyboard.

When I look up to the stars at night. I'll pick one and say "That's Renee" and I'll chat with you.
I will so ever be thankful to have known you and had you in my life. Even if it was too short.
I will hold you in my heart.
I will hold your family in my heart.
I will think of you often and all that you've taught me.
I will value every friendship I have made through knowing you.

You will always be with me.

Pattee - My tears are with yours today, my friend. I am crying for our loss, for that spark named Renee that we all loved so much, who made our days brighter, more joyous, and love-filled. I will pick a star, too, and tell Renee how much I love her, and how grateful I am for all she has given to me. Sending you love xoxox Pam

Hi Pattie, stopping by to give you a hug. I swear (and Renee would love that) that I saw her hanging on the quarter moon early this morning, and heard HAR HAR. Renee lives where there is love and beauty. Love to you, Deb

I am so sorry to hear of your friend's passing. I have lost some dear friends to cancer and one of my friends just found out that she has stage 4 breast cancer. I am sending love and prayers your way. We all need to support each other and fight this awful disease. In my family, almost every grandparent, aunt, uncle, several cousins, and my father has had cancer.

Georgina said...

Oh Pattee, I'm so sorry for your loss. I noticed she was very popular among many of the art bloggers and I only regret not knowing her. Please accept my sincerest condolences for such a huge loss in yours and many other people's lives. May her spirit live on in your heart and all who knew her.

God bless you and keep you.

xxoo,
Georgina

My dear Sweet Pattee...

I am so sorry that you are feeling so sad at the loss of you soul sister, if there were words that could ease your pain I would say them but I know there is not much I can say to make your pain ease... just know that your beautiful friend Renee is feeling no more pain and is with you always, by your side and in you heart until you meet again.

I send you a huge hug across the miles

(((((((((((((((((((HUG)))))))))))))

I am crying and I never exchanged one word with Renee. I'm glad that she's not suffering now. I', so glad that she touched my life all the same.

Hugs to you, Patee, and your aching heart. Wish I were near and we could cry together.

Pattee, I was very sad to read about Renee. I take some solice believing that she has left her earthly body riddled by cancer and that she now soars pain free. It just makes me feel better.

Hugs to you!
Laurie

Marie S said...

pattee, i am sorry i was not around to share in the immediate grief of losing our beloved renee.

i have been thinking of you and you just might hear my voice one of these days. perhaps we can create a collective tribute to our senior angel. i have an idea.

i hope you are doing okay. this tribute is very beautiful. i especially love the candles and i know renee would too.

hugs from me, pattee,
kj

I cry every day for this loss, selfishly for myself, but mainly for her family. How blessed I was to know sweet Renee. She'll stay in our hearts....
