So sorry for your loss. Dr. Reed was a very kind and caring man just like his Father. May God give his family comfort of know he is with his father again. Our thoughts and prayers are with y’all.

Dear Elaine,
I am shocked to read of Mike's passing. You and your children are in my prayers. I will always treasure his kindness, as well as his (and your) delightful senses of humor. I loved his laugh. And I loved how in sync you two were, able to finish each other's sentences. It was always a pleasure to share your company. May God bless and keep you during this painful time. I'm just so terribly sorry.
