RIP: Rene Renick


Rene Renick

Rene Renick was my mentor at the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV).  She made it possible for this blog to thrive and grow internationally.  She was a fierce advocate for survivors of domestic violence and child abuse.  She made a phenomenal dent in the Universe.

This morning I received word that she passed away over the weekend, and I am beyond devastated.  Rene wasn’t just a colleague and mentor.  She was a cherished and treasured friend.  We laughed and cried together.  We celebrated our triumphs.  She made me a vase at her potter’s wheel to remind me every day that we may be tested but we will survive.

On Navigating Uncharted Waters’ 10th anniversary, I celebrated Kiwi Mary and Rene Renick.  I can’t believe they are both gone within months of each other.

RIP, Rene.  You will be powerfully missed.  I love you.
