  8. Reny, our Patriarch after the passing of our rock and Matriarch, Agustina Chaves, leaves a deep hole in the hearts of each of us in his family. He was beautifully genuine, extremely lovable, amazingly considerate of others, truly kindhearted, and a real gentleman. He was cherished as a big brother by my husband, Edward, and deeply loved and appreciated by myself, his sister-in-law. He always, every time I saw him, asked about my parents and family, and each time listened carefully and thoughtfully as I would update him on their lives. Our children adored him as their Uncle Reny, who always had warmth and love to share throughout the years.

    Karen, Jennifer, Lisa and family, please know that we grieve with you and that we are holding you in our hearts during this terribly sad time. We love Reny, and we love you. May God bring us all comfort in the following days…

    Carol, Ed, Brendan, Gabri, and Alex
