Andy, Lori, Dave and Families,

My deepest and sincerest sympathy. Your mom was a good lady. I feel like she was my mom in some regards in that I've known her most of my life, I think since around 10 years old. Thank you for sharing her with me and treating like a brother. She was one of a kind. :) God bless "Mom Reed" and each of you.

Leave your Condolence
