Dear Joan, This is such a beautiful tribute to Reed. I am sorry he had to return home so soon, but how wonderful that you shared a lifetime of memories. You are both just so wonderful...."E"
Christy, so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts are with you and your family. Rick was fondly reminiscing about Reed and some of their antics so many years ago.
I'm still in shock! I don't have to tell you how good a 'guy' "J". Reed was. I had the pleasure of meeting him, through Jim Nock, when we were in grade school at Blessed Sacrament (back in the 50's). I could go on for days with all the fun times and great things that we did and HE made them even better! I can still see and hear his jaunty laughter and the sparkle in Reed's eyes when he was talking or explaining something. His 'wings' will live on in infamy. I STILL have 'that garlic' that you gave me from that house. It comes up every year, in my garden. Guess I'll have 'garlic reed' to see and enjoy for years to come! Those wonderful times at the Fredericksberg house, watching the Cowboys and Skins games. The deck BBQ's and your wonderful Christmas 'cards' pictures of the river!!! Reed is one that WILL live on in our hearts, especially mine!
So sorry for your loss. He was such fun to be around . Thinking of you.

I am so sorry to hear of Reed's passing. I had the privilege of working with him at Ferry Farm. He was an inspiration - so wonderful with our students and always so positive. May God give you peace and comfort during this time. Peggy Scott (FFES, Stafford, VA)
