Can't believe it's been 7 years today. Miss you lots, especially in the Fall as that was you & I's favorite time of the year: raking leaves, making scarecrows, carving pumpkins, and later in life, me coming up to TN to spend a couple days with you and George. George tells me that he has to put Scout down today due to bad hips, poor health and generally old age. How appropriate for Renee' to see her favorite pet again on this otherwise sad anniversary. We continue to miss her. :-(

I miss Renee a lot...She always called me Little Vincent, but she knew I was the tallest Bandoni. I wish she could have met Chantal, they are alike in many ways. Both love animals, the environment , and all things artistic...Miss you Renee...

I love this reminder, looking back on the comments and watching the slideshow. Aunt Renee you were "one of a kind"! You made everyone smile and were so adventuress. We had so much fun visiting you and George in TN. Love you and say hi to Grandma. XXXX

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO SAY WHAT'S IN MY HEART WHEN MY FIRST BORN LEAVES US. THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD COME CLOSE IS HER MOTHER & SHE'S STILL TOO BROKEN UP TO TALK ABOUT HER PASSING. THEY SAY TIME HEALS ALL, WE'LL SEE.

Renee' was the bright little girl you see in these pictures that show her as the flower girl at my wedding to her Uncle Peter. As the only girl among five brothers, she was a caring, devoted sister. She matured into a smart, creative woman who light will always be remembered.

The Broken Chain

Shared by Esther Hinkle on November 1, 2011

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.

In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone;

for part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot

see you, you are always by our side.  Our family chain is broken, 

and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will 

link again.    

Renee', Happy Birthday!  You are neither gone nor forgotten.

I will always remember you as  the coolest, hippest cousin around..My Michigan memories include the horse, the cool beads hanging in your apartment, as my sister and I brushed away everytime we walked through the door.

 My dad continues to talk about his visits to Florida, and those crazy chimpanzes..He loved visitng you.  Your care for every living thing was amazing..

Every year I looked forward to geting your Christmas cards and updates on your life down in Tennessee.  I still have your balloon magnet om my fridge!! My dad has your card posted on his wall with your kind letter. .He loved you so much.  He often talked about how he babysat you when you were little..and of course how what a pretty little girl you were in my mother and dads wedding..

I feel so fortunate and blessed to have been a part of Bandoni Easter 2010..It was so great to see you and George and all my family..  My children were lucky to have met you..I will forever miss you..but my memories of you will always bring a smile and a comforting thought.

Love ,Ellen  xoxo, 

My Memories

Shared by Jenn Anderson on October 31, 2011

Aunt Renee' always wanted to make you something or give you something before you left her house or before she would leave from visiting you.. Something she inhereited from her Mom.. (hi Grandma ;-) ) 

It would be jewelry, clothes or some special craft she made.. whatever it was you knew who gave it to you when you saw it. Renee' ! She was always trying to relate to whatever the kids were into at the time and we would be thinking of what she could get them that they could use.

At Aunt Renee's there was always something to keep you busy with her.  Whether it was jewelry making, painting, berry picking, 4 wheelin, a walk with the dogs, or looking for the bunnies. 

I am so sad we did not make the trip this past summer and regret not doing so.  We have some great memories of our visit in 2009 and the visits with her down here in Florida this year at Easter.

We love you and will always miss you Aunt Renee'.

Love,Jennifer, Doug, Justine, Kaci and Garrett
