I am so sorry for your families loss. I remember visiting Mr. and Mrs. Reed when I came to Arkansas with Wes and how kind and wonderful they were to me. I have remembered her thru the years as the special person she was. I am glad I was able to meet her and have memories of her in my life. I was not able to see her later in her life so I have a mental picture of her when she was strong and always doing stuff and helping everyone. I kept in touch with cards and she always wrote me back even after she couldn't write any more she would type me messages. I still have those cards. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
