    Hi Genevieve,
    I just received the news of Rene’s passing today. Although I did not meet Rene in person I remember fondly the stories you shared and the beautiful photo album the kids made for your anniversary. May the love of family and friends bring you moments of peace during these difficult days.

    To the family: When people touch our lives, and then we hear they are gone, the loss is very great. Your family has touched me in so many ways – through kayaking and gymnastics. Rene helped me build Alberta’s first pink kayak and gave me early tips on boat building. Liz raced me downriver all around Alberta, and Henri, Canada’s top paddler, became my best assistant coach, spotter, and photographer at the University of Alberta. My heart goes out to you all for the loss of Rene.
