I will always remember Renald wearing the t-shirts I brought back from Vietnam and also his loving and smiling wonderful man that he was. I am thinking of you also Mrs. Lepine, you were a wonderful mother and very good to all the nurses. Love Margaret - Posted by: Margaret Walker (nurse and friend) on: Sep 25, 2013
Dear Aunty Lucienne, Denis and Dianne. I am sorry to hear about the passing of Renald. My life story is: When my family went to Winnipeg for summer holidays, I always remember Renald giving us hugs and tapping our shoulders. And his hands were so soft. Renald could not say Denise or Annette, he would call us Nenise and Nannette. I think he could say Ricky. Renald also sang Goodnight Irene Goodnight Irene I will see you in my dreams. He always sang this song to my mom. He never forgot year after year. I know in my heart Renald is not alone for he has many family members who have passed away that will guide him through. My thoughts a prayers are with all of you at this hard time. - Posted by: annette neault (cousin) on: Sep 24, 2013
