Don, Papa Zeke, Mr. Raymond, and Mrs.Betty,
My heart is crushed over the passing of Ms. Renee. I loved her like a grandmother. I would walk in the room and her smile just touched my heart. I know that her, and my mama and daddy(Ruth snd Noah Derrick) are having a wonderful time together. She loved my family as if it were her own and we felt the same way about all of you. I would love to have been at the Pearly Gates to see her stand and walk again. Love you!
