    Aunt Rena, I love you so much and will dearly miss you. You were a true inspiration, and a very powerful will of strength. I will always remember and cherish all of our memories we’ve shared together. I will never forget the day we went 2 the Omaha Zoo. It was such a blast. You gave us a personal tour and gave us all the fun details about the zoo. Always, loved seeing your garden, visiting, playing games, and just spending time together. I love you so much. I will forever will be grateful for everything you have taught. #RIPAUNTRENA

    Rena was a loving woman that was always generous with her time and support of me and my sons. She was a second Grandma and a supportive friend. I enjoyed our phone calls. She will always be remembered fondly and missed greatly. May God comfort those who mourn.
