It is with a heavy heart that I write this post .... my Uncle Rene passed away this morning. For those of you that have been praying for him, I thank you, and ask that you keep his wife Connie, son Mark, daughter Dawn, and our entire family in your prayers.
Rene was diagnosed with Brain Cancer last Spring, and lost his battle this morning. He was a man of deep faith, and I know that he is in Heaven with Jesus.
This photo is of Allie and Drew with Rene in July. We were able to spend a few days with Rene and the entire family in Denver, Colorado to celebrate Mark & Holly's wedding. Our memories of that time with family will be cherished forever!
I have so many memories of my Uncle Rene, but wanted to share a few .... small children were always in awe when Rene talked to them like Donald Duck (me included!) .... Rene had an incredible singing voice (he and Connie sang at our wedding over 17 years ago) ... Rene was a HUGE Iowa Hawkeyes Fan and loved the game of golf .... but most of all, he LOVED his family. I love you and miss you, Rene. Thank you for being a part of my life in such a big way! ~Nancy
