    Steve, I am so sorry to hear that your Renae passed away. I only met you last week but I could tell that you loved her very much. You came in to talk to me at Guardian Angels. I hope I helped you to feel a little better. Please know that you and your family will be in my prayers. I hope you look into what you and I talked about with the support group. I think Renae would like that you are helping other people. I believe that you have the knowledge and the heart for it. Please take care, Steve.
