    Rena used to go to my school, she was a grade below me at the time, she was a very unique and outgoing girl. She could light up a room with her smile and make anyone laugh. She was a bright young lady and she will most definitely be missed by anyone who ever met her. We are all praying for her family and friends.

    Even though I was a grade above Rena I knew she was a very brilliant girl. She always made people smile and laugh. Although I never got the chance to get close to here I wish my deepest regards to her family and will have them in my prayers. I will always and forever love and miss her. She was a kind of special person you can rarely find.
