I didn't get to know Rene very well. I always read her posts and sometimes made a tiny comment. But reading how her death has affected everyone in the group so much tells me that I truly missed out on knowing someone very special. I have lost many people in my life and it's never once been easy, even if they were suffering with an illness. I know everyone is happy knowing she is not longer sick and in pain, but that still doesn't make it any easier. My heart goes out to her family and friends.
