I send my condolence to the family and friends may God grant you peace and comfort during this difficult time.
Psalm 83:
July 28, 2017
To the Reese Family,
Each and everyone one of you are in my prayers. Hold on to all the precious memories you each have. I will miss crossing that front aisle in church to say Hi Mama, and tell her I love, her a kiss on her cheek. Mama will be greatly missed and always loved. While we loved her here on earth God loved her more and took her home to rest.
