Sending our sympathy to all of the McCabe family. We were saddened to hear of Rene's passing. She was a life so well lived and her kindness will live on through her family. We are great full to have met her and Bud many years ago through her cousin Pat and Jim.

I have fond memories of Rene and Bud, and helping with baling hay, and good visits! Rene was very good to our family when my mother, Zoe, died. We nurtured the hydrangea she sent for many years! Your family is very fortunate to have learned and been loved by Rene!
