  1. I am saddened to learn of Renee's passing. I first saw her beautiful smile as a young boy growing up in Attleboro. She was a "ray of sunshine" and everyone that knew her loved her. How fitting that she would become "Mrs. Sweet". Regretfully as adults we realize how special those people that touched our hearts as children are gone too quickly. At least now she knows how loved she was. May she rest in the arms of the Lord until we all meet again in Heaven. Amen

  2. John and Nate,

    Having the opportunity to known Renee is what I consider to be a true blessing. Her positive outlook and smile were simply contagious. May you find strength in the memories that you shared.

    My heart goes out to you,
    Andrea Willson

  3. RIP RENEE from fighting the good fight...."and may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest."
    My sincerest prayers thoughts and condolences go out to John and Nate.
    God Bless,

  4. John, Nate and family,
    We are so sorry for your loss. Renee was always so happy and outgoing. She was a wonderful person and will be missed by everyone that knew her.
    You are in our thoughts and prayers,
    Aussie, Donna, Amelia and Austin Trainor

  5. Although I have not seen my cousin Renee in years, when I think of her I smile, as that is what Renee brought to people's faces a "smile" she was happy go lucky and she will be missed dearly. I send her loving family, John, Nathaniel, Ricky, Randy, and Robbie my deepest condolences and love. Boys, your mom will take good care of Renee in Heaven... Love you all. Gail
