Dan, deepest sympathy and condolences to you and family. It was great running in to you recently, but as the old saying goes: You just never know what someone is dealing with.

To Dan and the Family, so sorry to hear of the passing of your wife and mother. I’m sure you are all glad that her pain is over and you can put that memory aside as you remember all the good times shared thru the years. Steve Meyer

Dan, We are so sorry to hear of Renae’s passing. It’s been over 40 years since we were neighbors and Renae babysat our son Scott. Remember all the good times.

I’m so sorry for your loss Dan.

To Dan, Tanya, Amber, Tiffany and Nathan. It was a beautiful service and I wish I could be there to share stories and memories. Growing up I always enjoyed our trips to your house for the holidays and I always remember Renae having a smile on her face. She was truly a wonderful person and will be greatly missed.

Hello Dan. It saddens me for your loss. Today, Covid prevented me from celebrating Renae’s life with you and the Kimball clan. But, still have the memories.

Dan and family, Cary and Carmen (Deibert) Hart are sorry to hear about the loss of Renee. May she rest in peace and hope the good memories will bring you comfort.
