The family of Carol E. Rendernick has received the following condolences.
I’m so sorry for the loss of your Mother Russ. I never got to meet her but I feel as if I know her because of how much you loved and talked about her. Please know I am here for you anytime day or night. May God Bless you and your family Russ. May you find peace knowing she is with God and those family members that have gone on ahead.
I am very saddened for my good friend, Russ who has lost his Mom this past month. Russ shared with me her love of candy corn & how she enjoyed the different flavors, so much so I often found myself searching for them when I’d be out shopping!
Carol, you’ll be missed here on earth however we know one day we’ll all be together again. Until that time I’ll hold Russ close in my heart & prayers. Peace be with us all in Jesus name, Amen
