In Loving Memory of Renée Gail Wolk Richman
Renée Richman loved being alive. Her joy in life showed brightly in her love of intense color and the immense pleasure she took in a sense of humor. She always said that a sense of humor could get a person through very hard times. I have found this to be true on many occasions since her passing. She had the rare talent of being nonjudgmental about people, but especially about the students at John Fitzgerald Kennedy High School where she worked for 12 years. She was steady and flexible with everyone she met. She had an easy willingness to help anyone who needed her, from tutoring students for English classes to giving a bone marrow transplant to a complete stranger. We miss her deeply!
a child become wife become mother, how brief is life, pure in spirit, so warm in heart, how fleet afoot; taken life a winters frigid blast; even old age her life now passed. comes in the wink of an eye. but a life cut short deep chasm of mourning before its time engulfs those that knew takes our breath away, how very precious and few and makes us wonder are such souls among us. at purpose so the parting must befit and reason the light and joy and love and rhyme which her life was.cherish the memories, fragile and fleeting though they may be, for that is what will keep her love alive, and in the remembering keep her with us even as we go forth into tomorrowbut today as in a dream we walk, and heavy is the burden on our hearts. there was no time for good-byes, so let us remember all of her hellos.
