I was on a job site that advised looking up your own name on the internet and your daughter's web site came up first on the list. It was a bit shocking to me to see the words "Renee Rondeau Murder Victim" and I extend my sympathy to your family. Renee

Pray for all of those victims of violent crime who are innocent, like Renee. God Bless Gordon and Elaine for letting the loss of Renee hold some positive meaning by virtue of the work they do to save society's throw-away children. The answer will not be found in building more and more prison beds. Given the number of prison beds built in Georgia compared to other states, we could have solved crime a long, long time ago here. Instead of building prison beds, let's do our part to help build lives for young people.

I have just read your website on your daughter Renee. I am so sorry and I send my prayers to you and your family. My daughter Cynthia Tammy Hernandez aged 20 was also murdered on June 11, 1999 by a boyfriend she only knew for 1 1/2 months. He shot her like if she was nothing. She was such a joy to me and I miss her more then I can say. My life will never be the same without her. I know how you and your family are feeling without your daughter Renee. I send my prayers to you and your family. LaRaine Jimenez larainejimenez@verizon.net

My sister and grandmother were victims of murder, and my mother passed away when I was a teenager. My sister and I always said when we saw butterflies that it was our mother and so now that my sister and grandmother have passed away, I see a butterfly and I know in my heart it is my mom, grandmother and sister. I know how it feels to lose someone you love so much and I know we never heal but we adapt to it. I don't know your situation but I hope you see your butterfly soon.

Dear Elaine & Gordon; I have known you now for four years and never knew about Renee's web page. This is so beautiful, I can see you both. Elaine, these beautiful leaves and angels reminds me of the story you told me when I first talked to you on the phone. You told me about the butterfly in your backyard and how you knew it was Renee. I can remember feeling so warm inside because I too love and believe in butterflies. We have come a long way and still have every far to left to go. I am so honored that Renee and Stephanie brought our families together. It's sad to know of all the reasons why, and reasons we will never know. But, I do know that Renee much have been very special to everyone, because I can feel and see her smile through you both. Mike and I love you guys so much. I know Renee did too! Love and Hugs Sandra & Mike

Elaine and Gordon, I am a classmate of Renee's, Evans Class of 83 and was very saddened to hear of her death when I attended the reunion. I know that much time has passed since Renee's passing and I hope that each day you gain a little more peace and a little more strength in knowing that a wonderful person like Renee is in a better place. I have great memories of Renee, as we had some classes together and she signed my yearbook. You are in my thoughts and prayers and I wish you peace and joy as you remember Renee, as we all do, and the great gift it was just to know her. Love to you and your family Bea (Griffin) Spoerl and family.

Elaine and Gordon, I visited Renee's site. And I am crying so hard at this moment...........and listening to this song.........in the arms of the angels may i find some comfort here........GOD's presence is so magnificent. Even the poem was so angelic. I don't know what to say......but I truly feel your pain at this moment. I know that my ex-husband made me a victim of domestic violence when he tried to kill me, but GOD made me a survivor. And even though so much bad has followed it is because of people like you that show me the way may not be smooth but it can be traveled. At this point in my life I am so use to GOD carrying me that I don't want him to put me down any time soon.........thank you for allowing me to be apart of your group now and showing me your kindness.

I used to work for a bank in Chicago and I was the one who helped Gordon & Elaine open a memorial fund for Renee less than a week after her murder.

I think of Renee every Halloween and Christmas. Christmas: Because I met her at a Chicago Lakeshore Hospital Christmas party. I thought she was the most beautiful young woman I had ever seen. She was with her boyfriend who worked for me. And every Halloween I think of her beauty with sadness. I attended the scattering of her ashes and was moved. I know that you don't know me; but I know you. And as a mother, my heart aches for your loss. Please accept my wishes for the healing of you pain, as I think of your daughter and how beautiful she was at the Christmas party in 1993. Kate Townsend

Gordon & Elaine, This is a very nice page! I was just writing a mail to my friend about recent losses of my family members and friends and the people whom I have known for years, including the dog, Asheley, at the Erbmann's.

Yoko will be in Japan in a week, and we will throw a big party for her as a great entrepreneur. We will always remember Renee.

Take care,

I am sorry to read that your loved one has died. My cousin was murdered by 3 inner city thugs that all had prior records.

I DO KNOW the feeling of outrage that comes with seeing that they should never have been out on the street.

Strangely enough, I wrote a sonnet several years ago about a girl named Renee. I'd be very honoured if you might read it. The poem is at:

Please know that people really care...

and that the victims rights movement

is gaining strength every day.

Thank you also for having the courage

to bring this case to the internet.

Sincerely yours,
