Please accept our sincere sympathy as you grieve the loss of Cleve from this life. Ron and I will always remember our time in Montgomery and your entire family with great fondness. One memory that has always stayed with me was the time that Cleve, while teaching a Sunday School class, said that whenever he awoke in the middle of the night and couldn't fall asleep, he would just start praying until he fell asleep again. I found many years later that this would be a saving grace for me. May God's grace be with you all.

To Mr. Curtis Reding family, It is with deep sympathy that I let you know that as a child, I would always hear his name. My sister Ms. Ann Davis worked there for 26 years. Even though she has passed away, I know she would want me to do this. Personally I never knew him but hearing his name, I could tell he was a special man. Ann would mention him throughout our conversations. Please accept my heart felt condolences for your loss. May God continue to bless each of you and keep you in his loving care.

Cleve was one of the first and finest people I knew from early childhood at Clairmont School and First Baptist Decatur. I am saddened by his passing and wish his wife, children and sisters the very best.
