    Renny was always so special to my mom (his cousin Evelyn) and dad (Louis). When my mom was having her cancer treatments, Renny would call and check on her a few times a week. After she passed, he continued to check on my dad. He was so genuine and caring. His concern meant the world to my parents. I will remember him fondly and keep his family in my prayers for peace. Sending hugs.

    I’ll miss our daily talks. It comforts me to think of you with your parents and brother Tony and brother Rene (my beloved husband).
    We go back a long way! We first met when Rene volunteered you to help me move from my BU dorm to a 3rd floor apartment in Brookline. You carried all my stuff up.
    Until we meet again,

    I had the great privilege of caring for Rennie at courtyard for the last two years. He was such a wonderful man and will be greatly missed. One of my fondest memories of him was on a day when we were so crazy busy, he poked his head out of his room and told me if I needed any help I could ask him. He was such a kind man. I loved our endless conversations about sports each shift I would work. He talked so often about his wonderful family and how much he loved them. I was so honored to get to know him and to be his nurse. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers during this tough time.
