“We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Cleone's family. She was always kind and fun to be around when she and Rene got to chatting. The stories were grand and usually about one or more of the kids, whether it be hers or Rene's boys. Rene talked about Cleone, as being one of her best friends. Sorry to hear of her passing wish we could have gotten them together one last time.”
