My son was in Renee's class last year. She was dedicated, thoughtful and really worked with our son to pull out the best from him.

My thoughts are with her husband Tony and her Parents and siblings.

Much too young for such a talented teacher to die, condolences to her husband and all her family. This is a difficult disease, we need some better treatments if not a cure soon. Please donate to JDF, this is the organization that is seeking a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
