She was single and since I was 25 yrs. her senior she felt comfortable in asking me if I thought it would be a conflict of interest in her dating an attorney. I told her to "go for it" because some employees were married to attorneys. But, mainly because of her impeccable character she was beyond reproach. My condolence to her family and friends. John & Martha Vivona 6/22/2012 6:07:33 PM I had the privilege of working on the same team with Renee the last couple years. She had a very caring way & I never knew her to have a bad day. It was obvious she cared very deeply about others,especially her close friends and family. She will be missed by many.
