    I miss you so much girl. I miss your infectious laugh, your goofy smile and ornery streak. You were so much fun to be around and to joke with, quote movie lines, and to just relax and goof off with at work. Until I see you again.

    Rende’s birthday is Dec 14, mine is Dec 15, we shared the same astrological sign :-), the same love for singing, and we recognized and applauded the other’s gift with a private smile and kudos as we returned to our seat from a fine performance. To the family, we loved your daughter, she was our American Idol, our X-factor our karaoke diva!

    One of our friends told me that Rende’s mom stated that although all her girls could sing, that she herself could not sing a note. Rende got all the notes in a beautiful rainbow, amplified by the gift that can only come from God’s bounty. She hit all her notes precisely,beautifully,and with great volume that never strayed into a falsetto. Yes mom, you not only sang a note, you sang an entire auria through your beautiful daughter Rende Cheyenne- God bless

    I have only met Rende one time, but I automatically liked her. She had an amazing attitude and spirit. My condolences are with her family.
