Farewell Messages from Fans:
My favorite Lexie scene would have to be in Aremid when she confronts Stefano and Celeste in the cave announcing that she knows that Stefano is her father. Such an epic scene. - Shane

Your fantastic character portrayal as Lexie Carver has been a true pleasure to watch. I love when the writers would give you a fantastic storyline because I knew it would be acted to perfection. You are a wonderful actress. You really make your scenes full of raw emotion and most of all you make each scene you are asked to do believable. Sometimes this can be a difficult task to pull off but it appears super easy for you...and that's AMAZING! I feel I am right there with you going through whatever it may be: pain sorrow, grief, or happiness. I respect your wishes to leave Days ,however, I of course wish you would never have made the decision to leave. Thank you for giving me fantastic VERY well acted scenes to look forward to so much so that you made me excited to watch. I wish you the best of luck with your future. You have been a treasure in the soap acting world for Days!  Best of luck with your future endeavors!!!  -Erin

Thank you so much for bringing to life the character of Lexie and making her someone I cared about for the greater part of 20 years. DOOL will never be the same with out you! Although you will be greatly missed, I have no doubt you will enjoy retirement to the fullest. Congratulations on moving on to the next phase of your life. I hope you can make every second count! Many happy thoughts and prayers for continued happiness in life! -Jennifer

I will always love Lexie. I loved her scenes with Joe and James. She was one of the best on Days. -Alin

What a loss Days will suffer when you leave, Renee. You are a wonderful actress and I will always remember the time you've spent with the show. You have a special place in my heart as does Lexie. Prayers going up for you and
I sure will miss seeing you. -Robolynn

 I just want to wish Renee all of the best in her future endeavors. My favorite storyline of Lexie's was the Baby Switch. -Marie
