I was deeply sadened to hear of Dr. Reeds passing. He was such an important part of the Steele family women for such a long time. If I am not mistaken, I believe my brother and I were one of the first set of twins he delivered. He also assisted Dr. Julie with the delivery of my own twins in 2004. Here is a funny story I must share, After 10 hours of waiting on my first child to enter this world, Dr. Reed came in my room and told me if I didn't hurry up and deliver I was going to have to see another doctor. I told him OH NO, it was almost 5pm and I wasn't seeing another doctor. He was going to deliver my baby. When Ethan was born he had a head full of hair. I told Dr. Reed it was such a shame that even babies had more hair than he did! We laughed for quite a while.
His humor and excellent bedside manor will be deeply missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of Dr. Reed's family.
