    My condolences to the family.  I remember getting together many times with the Renner clan when I worked at the Elks and when my mom (Dorothy) and brother Bobby would see everyone at various events.

    May Gods peace be with each of you.

    My Dear Cousins, Sisiter Susan, Mike Matt, Chuck, Rita and Jane,

    We are all so sorry to hear about Aunt Rose. Really a shock. So many good and happy memories of her.  I never saw Aunt Rose when she didn`t have a huge smile on her face. What a gentle,  wonderful mother you have! You were her happiness and life and you are all great, happy people because of your loving parents.

    So sorry we could not be there. My parents said it was a beautiful mass. Glad to know her and Uncle John (the candy man) are together again in heaven. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you in this difficult time.

    To the Rose Renner Family:

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rose's family.  I knew Rose from the mid 1930's.  The Boul's were our neighbors. As kids we enjoyed many fun times together but we never could get the girls to come out and play softball in the lot next door to the Boul's. We always seemed to dread that long walk to St. Teresa's School in the morning - afternoon was different; school was over.  Our memories will be forever.  Del and Jane Riess

       I will always remember Rose's beautiful smile.  She literally lit up the room when she walked in.  She always seemed to have fun wherever she went, and laughter surrounded her.

        She loved her family, and it was obvious she enjoyed their company.  She was a great mother-in-law to my sister, and was always welcoming to members of my family.   

        I had never enjoyed the annual Christmas parade quite as much as when she invited me to join her and her daughters the first year Roxie and Chuck were married.  She knew how to keep everybody warm!

        So, living in Texas, my time spent around Rose was limited.  But she made an impact on my life.  And my three nephews, who I love so much, were fortunate to have their "Grandma Rose" so close.  She was quite a lady, and will be greatly missed!

    Jane was actually my "first love."  I have so many fond memories of Rose and the Renner family.  Rose always smiled and wanted to know "the scoop."  She admired my mother for raising 11 children...mostly by herself.  Rose was a very classy lady who thought more of others than she did of herself.  I remember coming to see Jane and Rose welcoming me into their home with a smile and asking me if I wanted something to eat or drink.  She was very hospitable.  Heaven is richer now that Rose has crossed the threshold.  I pray for God to comfort and strenghten all of you as you mourn.  I know that you have many wonderful memories to help ease the pain of your loss.  You've been there for so many other families through the years in their time of grief.  I pray that many will return the love.

    I am so sorry for your loss.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this sad time.  Aunt Rose was a wonderful person and I remember as a child that your house was always the 1st place that we came when we were kids visiting Grandma.  Your Dad and her always seemed to compliment each other and made such a terrific couple.  I am sad to see her leave us but now she is with Uncle John, Grandma and her brothers and sisters that have left us over the years.  She will be missed by me and all of my family.

    Dear Rose Renner Family,

    What a fantastic picture of your mom, Rose...that's just the way I remember her when I would come over to play as a little girl.  Your mom was always so calm and welcoming with that beautiful smile, and with your dad, raised an amazing family.  I have many fond memories on 10th Street...your mom was so tolerant of the neighborhood kids ciphening through your home.  In her quiet way, she kept us in line, yet we always had fun.  As her children, you should be proud.  May you carry on her wonderful traits.  With love,  Patty and Bill Weier
