It is very hard to remember Reny withoout thinking about her generosity, kindness and her great sense of humor. She was a person who decorated every space with a wonderful taste, she could transform a room into a home. It was really nice to hear her stories full of anecdotes. I always asked her to talk to me about my grandmother. She was like a mother to my mom and for that we will always be thankful. I cannot forget how happy I was every time she came to Ecuador. I remembered the way she treated me and my siblings and how we were always happy to be with her. I remember the last Christmas we had in Ecuador and how memorable it was because of her. I am sure, we will see each other again, but now she needs to be received in heaven by her mother and husband, Rocío
