What a wonderful, caring, giving person - that was Reid. We got to know him when the bank he worked at was called Peoples Trust....and that was Reid. He was for the people and he could be trusted - an honorable man. He helped us SO much, and we developed a treasured friendship. May the Lord guide and support you in and through your grief. God bless you.
