We will definitely miss Rena. It has been a long time since we've seen her but we have many fond memories of her when she was growing up in Corpus Christi, Texas. Rena and her sister, Carrie and their cousins, Amy & Dee Ann would come down to our house and sit on our front porch and visit with us. We also played many a game of softball in their front yard. We had lots of fun together and she was always a happy child growing up. We have been thinking of her and praying for her since we heard about her illness. Our thoughts and prayers are now with her family. May it comfort you to know that she is now in heaven and is at peace. We will forever treasure our memories of her and the good times we shared!!!!!!!

George T Luther Jr left a message on August 9, 2011:
It is our belief that to honor a man is to not be intrusive toward his wife. This being the case I really only knew Rena through my wife and Rena's husband the best. My wife did manage to pick up some of Rena's most prominent habits. One such habit is worshiping God openly. Another is to not worry what others think of the way you choose to worship. Another habit is when you give God a prayer to never take it back and trust in Him that the prayer will be answered in what ever way is best to glorify His kingdom. Rena lives on in the hearts and habits of those who loved and trusted she knew the combination to the gates of heaven. She IS truly among us.
