The world has lost a beautiful soul. I got to know Rene when she was living in San Miguel de Allende a few years ago. She was a dear friend and a loving Mama to one of my Rescue Dogs named Sandy. She brought Sandy back to St. Pete with her and took wonderful care of her the rest of the little, sweet, doggie’s life. May she spend eternity experiencing the love she gave to others.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her and the souls of all the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
