As a little girl I remember watching her on Sesame Street. I loved her singing style. I also enjoyed watching her play the nonsense Rose Halloway on 227. I did hear about her passing some years ago. I was shocked and saddened. I'm glad that she got to do what she loved in life. You are very much missed Ms. Alaina Reed.

Alaina Reed will always be one of my favorite actors. Her voice, Sesame Street and 227. Oh not to forget the depends commercial. She was sweet and humble. I'm quite sure she knew who Jesus was and she's resting in his care.

I Have not seen bernice since the early 70's when she came through cleveland in "hair". Before that in the late 60's in kent ohio. She was singing with a group called "Marble Cake" and later a group called "Tiny Reed and the Valors". I went to kent with a friend of mine Mike Peoples. Bernice was dating his brother. It was such a surprise, we hadn't seen eachother in years. She flew off the stage and gave me a kiss. We about had to give Mike CPR! I grew up in Springfield and was a classmate of Bernice at Roosevelt Jr. High. We wanted to be girl friend and boy friend but the mores of the times wouldn't allow it. I'm white. A real no no . She had that unbelievable voice even then. We were the lead male and female roles in "Brigadoon". Even though we had rehersed together they wouldn't let her perform the night of the show. I refused to sing without her and we were both replaced. I moved from springfield just as we were entering HS. We promised to stay in touch, and did for a while, got busy wil our lives and drifted apart. In 1979 I had a daughter and in the early 80's we were watching Sesame Street. You can imagine my surprise. I called Childrens Television network and asked for Bernice Reed. The Receptionist said Bernice who? I then asked for her by her TV name. As luck would have it she was right there picking up a check. She got on the phone and immediately scolded me for calling her Bernice. She was leaving for the summer to return to California I believe, but she said to call her in the fall and she would arrange a tour of the set for my daughter. Just like
puff the Majic Dragon, fall came and my daughter didn't have the interest in Sesame Street anymore to warrent the expense. I then saw her at the Macys parade and on Comedy Central, but we never spoke again. I regret that deeply. I just found out about her passing now. You see I'm having my first granddaughter next month. It caused me to try to find Bernice online. We'll watch Sesame Street again but it wont be the same for me. I hope someone reads this someday and lets the family know that an old friend still remembers her and loves her. John Carter jtrew@att.net

Tiny you were the brightest star in my family,I was always proud of you.I miss you,but your light still shines and shows me what is possible.Love Michael O. Wood Sr.

May we never forget those we love. Even though it seems the pain will never go away, Please draw comfort from these words. "He is healing the broken hearted ones and is binding up their painful spots" Psalm 147:3
January 04, 2011
How do you say good-bye to someone you've know all your life. I've known Tiny longer than my sisters or brothers. WE were blood, best-friends,best-buds and I loved her for all she did and accomplished in her life. She loved the stage and was good at what she did.

I still have a void in my life and she is soarly missed. May God have you in the shelter of "His Arms".

In life you meet many differant people, some who stand out in your mind, and others who may not. From the moment I met you, you were special to me. There are no words that can express the love I have for you. You were and always will be one who stands out in my mind, and heart. The fun times in Vegas, to the late night phone calls, I will treasure every moment with you. You were the greatest! I love you.

I first knew of Alaina on "Sesame Street." The next time I saw her, she was working in a revue called "EUBIE"! on Broadway. I was introduced to her by my father, Ron Abbott, who was stage-managing the production. Alaina could not have been sweeter.
March 15, 2010
I worked with Alaina in Sgt Peppers in Australia in 1976, and am shocked and saddenened by her passing.We had so much fun and shared lots of laughs!She was the pin cushion lady to my Sun Queen. Alaina invited me to come back to NY to sing with her but I couldn't afford to go. Next she was on sesame st, singing with George Benson, what a buzz,I will always miss you,all you need is love..Love Steve Campbell..Rita the meter maid, and Sgt pepper 15/03/2010

For Alaina...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

Tamim, thank you for the care you gave Alaina during the last years of her life. We were friends in NYC in the 70's and 80's. In 2007 we rekindled our friendship and planned my visit to LA. We talked about it often, but for many reasons kept putting it off waiting for a better time. I'm so very sorry she's passed on, she didn't let on how critical her medical condition was. That's the private Alaina I always knew. My condolences to Andre and his sister. Love each other.

Hi "Tiny",

It has been many years since we last saw one another. Our family, The Hamo's were very fortunate to have been at Kent State where we met.

We jhave so many fond memories of the fun that we had as well as your attending the great party that we had for sammy davis Jr. You will always be remembered and will always be missed.

Rest peacefully,

To the Reed-Amini Family,

I loved seeing Alaina on Sesame Street and on 227. She had a wonderful laugh and beautiful smile. I'm sure she will be greatly missed by all who personally knew her. Job once asked "if an able bodied man dies, can he live again?" The Bible's comforting answer is yes! In fact God yearns to bring back our dead loved ones (Job 14:14,15). Please find comfort in these promises and the many others found in the Bible.

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

My condolence to family. Please find comfort in knowing that Jehovah
(Ps 83:18)has set a dated when families will be united (Act 24:15 ".. I have hope toward God, which hope these [men] themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.)He also promise death will be no With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
more, pain will be no more, and there will be no more tears.

When I am dead, my dearest

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.

Music, when soft voices die

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory—
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heaped for the beloved's bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.

Linda, Toni, Karen, Pam, Nancy and Tiny - all members of the Springfield South Band. We made memories before the Alaina years. The giggles and fun and some disappointments are what we remember. We were there when the dreams of Tiny were determined and promised. Tiny knew she was destined for something other than Springfield and we all knew that with her drive it would all happen on a grand scale. Before there was Sesame Street there was band camp, band,band bus trips and high school days. We all remember that Tiny and she made our time together very special for a lifetime.

Alaina Reed was a women to be remembered as a childhood icon of the 70's the electric company that was real entertainment in contrast to todays media. Back when you didnt have to curtail your childs television viewing during their waking hours. She is a memory to never be forgotten and hope so sure as what is mentioned in the scriptures that brings comfort.

Sorry to hear of your loss. There are words of comfort the Bible makes very clear to those who are mourning and for your loved ones. The Bible gives a hope for the future that is so reassuring: “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.”—John 5:28, 29.
My deepest sympathy

Alaina Reed Hall will always be "Tiny" Reed to me. We were in Springfield South High's band & orchestra together. Later, in the late 1960's, we accidentally met each other in New York City while she was performing in the Broadway play "Chicago," and I was the musical director for several Motown Record Company acts performing at the Apollo Theater. She was a wonderful actress and a fabulous singer. My heartfelt sorrows and condolences go out to the Reed & Hall families. The world has lost an incredible entertainer, but heaven has gained another angel for its choir.

Sincerely,

To the Family of Alaina Reed-Amimi,

I am deeply saddened by the loss of such a talented and intelligent person like Alina. Her beautiful smile will be greatly missed.
At a time like this thoughts from the scriptures can bring some comfort.

At Psalms 34:18-"God is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who crushed in spirit he saves."

Revelation 21:4-"God promises that he will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more".

I hope these scriptures bring the family a measure of peace.

From a Stranger who truly cares.

December 23, 2009
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

December 23, 2009
Ms. Alania Reed was such a talented actress kept me laughing on 227 her and Marla and the rest of the cast keep me in stiches One episode in particular the one where Calvin don't want to get his lesson but want to be a successful Basketball Star and they used the gift of Rapping to help him pass his lesson. That episode really sold me on the cast and their Talents. Remembering a Star and to the Family thanks for sharing your loved one with the World.

I grew up watching Alaina and I will truly miss her warm smile and perky personality. May the God of all comfort bring peace to all those who love her.

December 23, 2009
I grew up wtching 227 and truly adored all the characters. At times we tend to feel that our t.v. heroes are somewhat immortal.

It is truly sad when we have to come to the tragic realization that they are human just like us and subject to the same illnesses and untimely death that we are.

May your family find comfort from such Bible verses as Revelation 21:4 which says the time is coming when there will be NO MORE TEARS of any kind, and DEATH will be no more.

My deep s;ympathy to your entire family.

I was greatly saddened when I read of Alaina's death. My prayer for her family and friends is that you will be comforted by your memories of her and "...the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort..." will bring you a measure of peace in your hearts. (1 Corinthians 1:3)
My family enjoyed many of her roles on TV & my daughter especially loved her as Olivia on Sesame St. How grateful we can all be for the hope of the resurrection when she will be returned to us in full health and youth.
December 23, 2009

Music, when soft voices die

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory—
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heaped for the beloved's bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.

When I am dead, my dearest

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.

But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Timim Amini and family:
Alaina"Tiny" Reed--God saw you getting tired and cure was not to be,so He put his arms around you and whispered come to me. With tearful eyes we watched you pass away.

You will be greatly missed, Ms. Alaina; I grew up watching you on 227. Your performances brought light to the world.

To her husband, Children, other family members, and fans; be encouraged in knowing that the love displayed through Ms. Reed and the various characters she played, has burned a lasting memory in the heart and mind of everyone that knew her.

Please let these words comfort you as well.

Dear Reed Family,

My family lived just one block over from your family on Catherine Street. It was so impressive to follow Bernice 'Tiny' Reed's career from Sesame Street to 227 and beyond. It is equally impressive to see how many lives she touched through those shows (including mine). She became known to the world as Alaina without ever losing her identity and becoming "of" the world. Please accept my deepest condolences and know that we will all see her once again when we travel the path she has followed.
December 22, 2009
Thanks for the wonderful memories Blessings to your family.

Miss Bernice ("Bringer of Victory" is what her name means) became part of our family thru her characters on Sesame Street and 227. She lived a life of purpose, and we celebrate her achievements and contributions as certain proof that ONE person can make a difference. Well done, Sister! Rest in peace. Proverbs 22:1
December 22, 2009
Paul say it best ... I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness. My prayer goes out to the family and love ones.
December 22, 2009
I am so sorry to her of her passing. She brought a fresh truth to every character she played. Even though it was a small part, in "Death Becomes Her," she was funny and realistic as the psych doctor for a very overweight Goldie Hawn. Her smile now shines in Heaven. She was a terrific actress that had devesating events in her life and accepted them as part of the whole circle of life. May she forever be at peace. God Bless.
- Mike,
December 22, 2009

December 22, 2009
to the family,
it is always sad when we lose someone we know and love but take courge from ecclesiastes 7:1-2 a name is better than good oil, and the day of death than the day of being born. better is it go to the house mourning than to go to the baquet house, because that is the end of all mankind and the one alive should take it to heart. jesus provided a good exzample when he died faithful to God, we to can etablish a good name and have a good reputation in gods eyes and it is far more valuable than riches. may God keep you strong
December 22, 2009

"And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
December 22, 2009
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

December 22, 2009
For Alaina...

I remember you...and so
do so many others.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

I met Alaina and her son and daughter many years ago at a hotel in upstate NY - we hung around together and I had no idea who she was until everywhere we went, children ran to her and she explained to me why. She was so lovely and kind and I was so sorry to hear of her passing. My condolences to her family.

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.
December 22, 2009
I loved Olivia on Sesame Street. Ms Hall touched the lives of millions of children in a loving, positive way. What a wonderful acomplishment! My deepest sympathy to her family.
December 22, 2009
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
December 22, 2009
I loved the sound of her laughter. She slipped on a smile as easy as slipping on a silk slip.She'll be missed.

December 22, 2009
My thoughts and prayers goes out to the family of the late Alaina Redd Halland to her cast family.

Put your trust in the Lord.
Weeping may endure for a night but joy will come in the morning...
December 22, 2009
My two children grew up with watching Sesame Street and learning so much for that program. Alaina was always one that I will remember as I would take a break from house work to join the children in learning how many cookies Cookie Monster was eating or Alaina teaching how it's important to be kind and share with others. She will be missed by many children and even moms. May her family know that she was a wonderful person who has left her mark on the world. God bless her.

It's hard now for you now but it will get easier, God will get you through......

Alaina Reed Hall will always be "Tiny" Reed to me. We were in South High's marching band together. Later, we accidentally met each other in New York City when she was performing in the Broadway play "Chicago," and I was the musical director for several Motown Record Company acts performing at the Apollo Theater. She was a wonderful actress and a fabulous singer. My heartfelt sorrows and condolences go out to the Reed & Hall families. The world has lost an incredible entertainer, but heaven has gained another angel for its choir.

To Ms. Hall's family, She left alot of smiles and wonderful memories. Thanks for allowing us to share some of them with you.

For Alaina Hall

Don't weep for me, as my God has called me home
Don't weep for me, the angels are singing on the throne
Don't weep for me, I have done all I could on earth for you
Don't weep for me, I will be in heaven watching all you do
Rejoice for me, God has brought me to my family here
Rejoice for me, remember I love you all so very dear
Don't weep my children, for God has spoken
You all have part of my heart as your token.
Rejoice my children, God has taken me to rest
Rejoice my children, for you all are blessed!

I remember her so well, her singing on Sesame Street on my TV in my living room daily and weekly on that show and I couldn't wait to see her on that show, and when she did 227 with Marla Gibbs as Rose. She always seemed liked she enjoyed what she was doing and was represented as positive black female actress always. My deepest prayers and condolences to her family and strength to them as she is resting in eternal peace and she left a contribution of her talent to a lot of people.

December 22, 2009
May you rest in peace and now enjoy your HEAVANLY REWARD. Now you can teach all the new little angels their own personal Sesame Street, before they come to earth. My husband and I and our siblings enjoyed watching you and the rest of the cast, teaching us our basics in life. That was REAL TEACHING, we are passing it on to our kids, ages 3 1/2 and 61/2. Great job on 227 also. All the residence on sesame street have lost a great friend.
December 22, 2009
To the Family and Loved ones of Alaina Reed Hall

My deepest condolence for the loss of a talented lady and actress. God is an Awesome God and He does not make mistakes.

He Gathers Every Teardrop
Regardless of the circumstance,
Regardless of the fear,
Regardless of the pain we bear,
Regardless of the tear.
Our God is ever in control,
Performing as He should,
And He has promised in His Word
To work things for our good.
But as a loving Father would,
He sometimes lets us cry
To cleanse the hurt out of our heart,
To wash it from our eye.
Yet gently gathers the tears
Within His hands to stay
Until He turns them into pearls,
and gives them back someday.
... (Author Unknown)

Words, however kind, can't mend your heartache: ,
but those who care and, share your loss wish you,
comfort and peace of mind. May you find strength,
in the love of family, and in the warm embrace, of friends.,

With Deepest Sympathy

Ms. Reed Hall's acting on 227 always seemed like she might not be acting all--just exuding a wonderful sweet spirit that endeared people to her, like she was the friend and neighbor who could always be called upon.

Our prayers go out to all her family, friends, loved ones, and fans.

December 21, 2009
Sesame street was one of my son's favorite shows when he was a little. At the time we were linving in VA Beach, Va when Alaina and her Sesame Street "husband" came to the Norfolk Zoo where we took him to see them. The both of them were so very warm and kind hearted. I will be enclosing a photo of me and my son, so her Sesame Street "family" and her family can see someone who watched as a child and now has grown up, married and a Charleston, SC Firefighter.
December 21, 2009
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

December 21, 2009
I was raised on Sesame Street, and "Olivia" was a staple of my childhood. I loved that we shared a name. Later I recognized "Rose" from 227 as my childhood friend. I am so grateful to have been both influenced and entertained by Ms. Hall's talent. God rest your soul. You were a very bright light during your time on Earth! My sympathies to her family and a big thank you for sharing her with us. Peace be with you during your time of sorrow.

December 21, 2009
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

December 21, 2009
i want to add my deep sadness at Alaina's death. I raised my daughter, Lisa Tharps, on Sesame Street. Lisa is an actor and lives in Los Angeles. When she befriended a woman who was in the play Medea, which Lisa appeared as Medea, and shared stories of their friendship, little did I know that she was the Alaina Reed Hall. Alaina brought much happiness to Lisa. I hope Lisa did the same for Alaina. Lisa is devastated about her death, and so am I. What a great person who became part of our family in the seventies and beyond. We love you Alaina. Thanks for sharing your life with our lives.
December 21, 2009
Your job here on Earth is done. You have gone to a place where there is no more pain and suffering.

Thank you, one and all for allowing us to know your beautiful daughter and family member,
I grow -up wacthing her on TV and was always happy to see her smile and friendly attitude . she never came across as someone other than what she was . A young lady that was very well raised and always, someone you were proud of. Among the many black persons who made it as they say. and who kept it real.


Respectfuly, Yours
Her loving T V friend.
December 21, 2009
About 35 years ago I moved to Manhatten to jump start my acting career. Once settled in my friends started taking me to the clubs. Alaina Reed was the most popular club singer in those days and I heard her many times. I am so sorry to hear that she has moved on but I will always have memories of her many club engagements in the Big Apple.
December 21, 2009
You were my favorite actress on 227 and played an excellent role on "The Bucket List". You will surley be missed and my prayers are with your family.
December 21, 2009
I loved watching Ms. Hall on "227". My sympathies to the family.
December 21, 2009
Although I only knew Ms Hall from her television appearances, I always admired her as an actress. It is my hope that her loved ones will keep her memories strong by contemplating her contributions to black entertainment and her way of bringing joy into the hearts of her fans. The true God, Jehovah has promised a resurrection and he is a God that does not lie. When His Son, Jesus Christ calls all those in the memorial tombs out, Ms Alaina Reed Hall will be right in among those. God's word is truth. Rely on it!
In sympathy,

December 21, 2009
I am so sorry to hear this. I remember "Olivia" from when my kids were little and I watched 227 every week. My sincere condolences to her family and friends.
December 21, 2009
Our family holds your family close in prayer through the days ahead. My baby brother was born with so many special needs in a family of 5 older brothers and sisters. He smiled the first time he was 3 and at 5 he spoke the words"Bench #5 when asked who was at bat during the world series. Sesame Street became his home address. He loved all of you and would sing,spell,talk, his numbers and alphabet lead him on. He is now 41 in a wheelchair since birth but holds down a part time job. His voice now after the coakler implant is used to teach everybody about the divine love of JESUS. Drs. told us he would be dead before he was 3 he was blind,deaf,partially quadraplegic. That made GOD laugh because HE knew my brother would meet a new family and open up an entire world of possibilities. What a blessing Alaina Reed Hall has been and will continue to bless many more through the media preserved. Peace of GOD and the light of Joy burning within each of us is not a farewell but the beginning of her real lifetime whole,healed, and in the loving arms of JESUS.
December 21, 2009

December 21, 2009
To the Family:

Sorry to hear of the loss of your love
one. However, there is hope for us to
see our dead love ones again, which is
a wonderful gift from God. At John 17:
3, Jesus said, "This means everlasting
life, their taking in knowledge of you,
the only true God, and of the one whom
you sent forth, Jesus Christ." But in
order for us to receive everlasting life, one must first be resurrected if
sleeping in death.

The Bible says that God made the earth
to be inhabited, yes, for all people to
live on it and to enjoy it. Please
read in your Bible Isaiah 45:18, a very
encouraging Scripture.

Alaina was a very talented actress, and
she will be greatly missed.

If you would like to discuss any of the
Scriptures sited here, please feel free
to email me.

My sincere thoughts and heartful condolences are with the family. Olivia brought a lot of fun and smiles into my home from Sesame Street. The Bible gives us comfort and hope. Revelation 21:45 says: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anyone the former things have passed away. And the One seated on the throne said: "Look! I am making all things new. Also he says: Write, because these words are faithful and true."

December 21, 2009
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

My deepest sympathy to all the family, friends and the staff of Sesame Street: Maria, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch Louis and all the others. I do not know their real names.
Alaina: rest in peace and I am glad you no longer have the pain. I took care of a woman whose breast cancer came back, so I have an idea of what you all are going through and what you went through Alaina.

Ms. Hall's smile will be missed and we send our condolences to the family. Enclosed are a few words of how Ms. Hall has carved a special place in our lives "She recognizes that her love has great value and must be reciprocated. If her love is taken for granted, it soon disappears. A good woman has a dash of inspiration and a dabble of endurance. She knows that she will, at times, have to inspire others to reach the potential God gave them. A good woman knows her past, understands her present and moves toward the future. A good woman knows God."
December 21, 2009
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
December 21, 2009
