    Christine Wareham
    The love we received from you Dad was unconditional. I knew from the moment I met you that I truly was the luckiest girl in the world. You never let us down. You were the most selfless, devoted human being to the people you loved. You had a wonderful sense of humour that we all loved. You where strong and supportive and most off you were loyal, loving and kind. I hope you know how much you meant to us. I love you Dad !! I can’t imagine a life without you in it. I am heartbroken. I need you !! Addison was so blessed to have a best friend like you, her Pépére. The love and affection you showed your little Bébé was priceless and will forever be treasured !! Our hearts are full with all the wonderful memories we shared and there won’t be a day that passes where we don’t miss you dearly. I love you Dad, Addison loves you Pépére. Always and Forever 💞

    Uncle Renald was a very loved man and my love for him was and still is great as only a great uncle can earn. He showed me a lot of love and kindness that was true and genuine. He was a great boss when I worked for him and never made me feel bad for any of the mistakes I made. He was a jokester that knew how to get me going without hurting or upsetting me. He was the strongest person I know and even at 69 years old could still crush my hand but pretended it hurt so I wouldn't feel weak. What a class act! I loved my dear uncle very much. He was a big strong man with the warmest and tender heart. He is the kind of uncle that I want to be. I will miss him forever and never will forget him.

    Don't really know where to start. I've known renald for around 20 years. Since the first time I met you and we had a language barrier each of us couldn't understand each other we had to use christine as middle man.but it didn't take to long to over come that.then you came to live with us and things just settled in nice. You used to wait up for me coming home from work hide behind the pillar and scare the life out of me and on multiple occasions.I fell for it going to miss everything about you .things will never be the same.i personally couldn't have asked for a better father in law. I am proud to call you my dad. I will Never forget you

    I still can't believe that Renald passed away It's very sureal.I had known him since I was 15yrs old.I have many memories that flash through my head. Working with him on siding as a teenager he was patient and taught me alot. All the fun and jokes sometimes at my expense at the ranch.Being with Brigitte he became my uncle too .I am grateful for spending time one on one with him for the 8 1/2 years we worked side by side before he retired. You will be truly missed Renald.You will remain in our thoughts forever. So until we meet again my friend. And when we do I'll buy the coffee

    Uncle Renald was a kind, strong, hardworking man who was always willing to lend a hand. When I was a young teen, I worked with him doing siding. He taught me a lot and he was very patient. He treated me like an equal, and I will always remember and appreciate him for that. He was strong, helpful, and generous to others, but he also enjoyed teasing those he liked. He was funny and always smiling, and he will very much be missed.

    Was filled with sadness to hear we had lost this great man. Mon oncle Renald was my first work partner. Lots of great experiences working along side him and pepere (Rino). Many laughs and lessons from this man. Never forget spending all those hours in the cube van wondering what the weather would do. To think you're no longer with us physically "dah its unbelievable"
     I will never forget your smiling face and keep your memories with me forever. 
    Until we meet again sir

    I can't believe my dear uncle is gone.He was like a second father to me without the rules.Though people considered him shy.Those that knew him well would see the real Renald. He was an honest caring and loving man. Also known to be quite the joker. You could talk to him about anything and not be judged. He really came happier and more alive when he moved in with Christine and Barry. When Addison came along he was so happy and proud to be a grandfather.I will cherish the the times that he stayed with us when Barry, Christine and Addison would go abroad,and when he and Glenn would work in the west end. My own 3 children knew him from an early age. They grew quite attached to their funny great-uncle. They were crushed  to hear the news. This has left yet another huge hole in our hearts. There is a place in my heart for my uncle until we meet once again.  I will cherish, miss,   you daily uncle Renald sending you lots of hugs until we meet again Uncle Renald ❤️

    I was devastated to learn of the sudden passing of my dear sweet Monoque Renald. He was the sweetest soul I’ve had the absolute pleasure of knowing since I was born. My mom was very close to him, so like the mommy’s girl I am, I followed suit. I hadt the pleasure of knowing him for 25 years although not long enough, damn were they good. He had a smile that would light up a room and a hearty laugh to match. If he caught you frowning “mah, that’s no good” he sure knew how to stir a pot. I knew whenever he came over for dinner he would have my back on the McDonald’s vote. I hope you’re resting as well as you lived, and we are going to miss you so much. I love you Monoque Renald, until we meet again, I’ll bring the Big Macs. Xoxo

    My heartfelt condolences to the family. It's very sad. I have known most of the Bosse Family way back from N.B. Such a lovely family. I remember going to Dear Mme Mathe's house. My prayers are with you all.

    Our heartfelt condolences Christine, Addison and Barry. We were so saddened to hear of Uncle Renalds passing. We was such a kind and gentle soul, Moms absolute favourite uncle. She always spoke about his kindness towards her and how he always made her feel welcome. We will miss driving up to your house and Uncle Renald coming out to the porch to greet us before we would even approach the door! I swear he had super power hearing! Christine - your dad loved and adored Addison SO much. The bond you had was incredible and such a gift that many do not get to experience in their lifetime. Please know we are here for you, whatever you need. We love you all so much!
