Hi everyone. In lieu of flowers or other gifts, we are hoping to raise money for travel expenses incurred ingoing to France this summer. Since most of Rene's family is in France, we would like to visit the French side of the family who are not able to go to Rene's party in New Orleans. Per Rene's wishes, we are going to leave some of his ashes in his two favorite places in the world, France and Hawaii. He would love to know that all his friends and colleagues helped make his final wishes come true.
