Dear Collins-Peterson Family,
I learned of Renate’s passing today and you must know how deeply saddened I am over your loss. Renate and I were the dearest of friends since 1965 and she was like a sister to me. I will miss her very much.
We worked together as O.R. Nurses at CVPH Medical Center for many years together until I relocated. We always stayed in touch with each other throughout the years and our bond of friendship continued to grow. We could always rely on each other, and we shared much laughter no matter what phase of life we were journeying on. We came to trust each other’s wisdom and support. She was a beautiful person with a sincere heart, and I know our lives will never be the same without her. I could never find a better and more caring friend. I will always cherish my memories of Renate knowing she is resting in eternal peace with our Heavenly Father. May the peace of the a Lord comfort and heal you.
In Deep Sorrow,
Sonja Crawford-Reddick
