31 for 21 -day 8-Posting in memory of Renee

A picture I took of Renee at the 2008 Down Syndrome Connection picnic

Today the Tucson Down syndrome community and the world lost a beautiful and very sweet little girl. Renee Blanchard passed away this morning due to complications associated with her cystic fibrosis. She was only 10 years old.

Renee was a little gal with lots to say, I was always so excited that she had the verbal ability to express herself, I thought she was amazing! I loved her voice, I loved her sweet spirit, but she was also strong and knew her mind! She was special in every way.

Our hearts are broken for her parents Doug and Georgianna and her brother Ryan, I know their lives will feel empty without Renee. We pray for them as they learn to live without their daughter and sister. I add my tears to theirs as they grieve losing their beloved Renee.

I'm so saddened by this. I almost got the chance to meet her and I'm so sad I didn't. My son Casey and Renee were in the hospital at the same time. Georgianna had said we could come visit and we never got the chance. We planned on visiting the day she died and I was blown away by it. I'm deeply saddened and wish there was something I could do. Everyone at the hospital loved Renee and just gushed with happiness when they talked about her.

She is a beautiful little girl.

You can see the joy she had for life in her eyes.

I am so sorry that this family had to loose this beautiful child.

I hope that they will be able to find some peace, comfort, hope and love for the future.
