I was saddened to hear of the passing of Renee Amoore, this week. She was the one-time host of a hour-long talk show about politics in Pennsylvania on WBCB until 2016.

Renee had a vibrant personality, a beautiful face and heart, a nurse, businesswoman, owner of a large, health management company that bore her name, a widow and mother. She was 67.

I knew her after she signed on to do a once-a-week show about the State of the State. Renee was busy. She was the deputy chair of the Pennsylvania GOP, a seasoned political professional, sometimes appeared on a Philadelphia TV Sunday news show. Plus, she ran her business like a train. Above all, she was a people person with friends on both sides of the aisle, mostly Republicans, she would add, with a sly laugh.

From time-to-time, I had a chance to chat with her about statewide issues and definitely party politics, especially about the time Donald Trump was emerging. And she would probably laugh at my use of the word, emerging.

We can agree it always is sad when we lose someone, family or friend. But what about those individuals who cross our paths, are there for a short time, and gone? I say, people like Renee Amoore keep on…

Did I mention that she was kind? She also was a woman of faith, so I believe she’s in a good place.

Rest in Peace, Renee.
