Renee has been our lifelong friend. We grew up together, she was not only a best friend, but a sister, family! She and Mike were soul mates. Together they experienced a lot of ups and downs. Always staying together, always staying strong. They were never dealt an easy hand of cards. As they began their life together in their new home and getting ready to start their own family with their son, they faced many challenges. From having their parents move in shortly after purchasing their home due to their house catching fire to them gaining custody of 4 beautiful children.
Mike and Renee took in these children and raised them as their own. A couple years later they were blessed with their daughter. Giving them 6 kids total. Through the struggles of both working full time and the struggles of always having to be in multiple places at once, they made sure the kids had the best. Whether it was splitting up to be in multiple directions and schools for kids sporting events or one working while the other was home helping the kids with homework and what not. They made the best of it.
Knowing these kids personally, they have a very special place in my heart. Because of Renee and Mikes kindness, love and affection, these kids have been able to enjoy their childhood, attend school and sports and just have a general love for life. The love that all the kids have for Mike and Renee was and is very apparent.
Mike and Renee were and always will be a great team. I was always in awe with them. Every time I saw them, they made my heart melt just seeing the love between them all.
Renee always has a smile on her face, no matter what she was or is going through. I always knew that I could count on her as a friend no matter what. Renee always put others first, especially her family. With that being said, we want to make Renee first! With all the emotional pain and stress that a death brings, it also brings financial burdens. It just so happens that it is Christmas time. The unexpected passing of Mike will be difficult. I am asking you all to consider and support Renee and the kids at this tragic time. Let’s spread the love to them as they always have to others.
Here is to Renee and her beautiful smile and amazing family! We love you Renee and kiddos!
Love Jenika and Alicia
