    Renate, you were such a good friend and neighbor in Leisure Villas. I will always fondly remember all the fun we had with you at the German American Club dances. You were Our Polka Queen. Rest in Peace. Kathy (von Spreckelsen) Sachs.

    To Renate,
    they said that there is a land of the living and a land of the dead. It is also said that there is only one link between them - the bridge of love and memory.

    Was man tief in seinem Herzen besitzt, kann man nicht durch den Tod verlieren.

    Joh. Wolfgang v. Goethe
