    Renee and I started playing together in almost adjacent backyards over 50 years ago. We had a lot of fun onstage together as adults. When she was no longer able to ham it up onstage with us, it was always great to have her laughing in the audience and giving us unsolicited but helpful notes or bawdy commentary. She will be missed. My condolences to Marcus, Joe, Rachelle, Ramona and all of her family
