A poem : Fallen Limb
A limb has fallen from the family tree I keep hearing a voice that says grieve for me. Remember the best times, the laughter, the song, the good life I lived while I was strong. Continue my heritage I'm counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest, remembering all how truly I was blessed. Continue traditions no matter how small, go on with your life, don't worry about falls. I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin, until the day comes and we are together again.
The family of the late Renee Cuffee acknowledges with sincere appreciation the comforting messages, floral tributes and other expressions of kindness during this time of bereavement. May God Bless and Keep you.

Condolence & Memory Journal


A wonderfully, sweet and gentle human being. My father, upon meeting her for the first time years ago said "she's nice". Those words stayed with me and shall always be with me. He was right. We have known each other for more time than we could readily admit. From Middletown, to Winterville, sons about the approximately the same age. Through it all we remained friends. I called and called until I thought there must have been something different. You didn't call back. Searching for an explanation, I went to FB, something I haven't done in years. I found my answer. I missed you and will miss you for the rest of my life.
