Rena Joy George

October, 1996 – April, 2016

Taken too soon, we were blessed to have this miracle in our lives for 19 short years. Rena had a wonderful heart and a beautiful soul. She will be greatly missed.

Rena will always be lovingly remembered by her mom, her dad, her brother and sisters, her grandparents, her uncles and aunts, her cousins, her many friends, and all those whose lives she touched with her kindness, her love, and her laughter.

We would like to thank our family and friends, and those who have reached out over distance and time to offer their love and support during this difficult time. A special thank you to the First Responders who came to our home that day, and to those that step up in times of crisis to let us know that we are not alone. We thank you all.

Please join us as we celebrate Rena’s life at 1pm on Thursday, April 21, 2016 in the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 91, 761 Station Road, Victoria, BC.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Vancouver Island Crisis Society, or any organization that helps kids, teens and young adults who are struggling to cope. Our kids are worth it.
