Mrs. Renoos was a wonderful and passionate person who took her own personal time to help me, one of her stidents, to learn to read and right. She always had time for her students no matter what. She is a golden light, that guided us kids into the light of knowledge, and self reliance. She will be missed dearly and I hope I can be half as great as she was. Mrs. Renoos was a major part of my life for learning new things in life, she showed me so many new things in life in and outta school. God bless her soul and let her jurnney to the after life be sweet and pleasant. My heart and prayers goes out to her family and loved ones.
