Sadly we will be laying my"Brother"(Uncle) Reggie to rest this coming Tuesday march 30. He has been a significant part of my whole life. We have shared many adventures through the years. He has taught me a lot,and hopefully I have taught him some to. We have worked side by side. Spent so many wonderful hours in the woods on the rivers and roaming through the fields. Enjoying all the beauty mother nature has to share. Now he has taken a new path on his own and will join the family who's gone before him. I will miss him and go on without him. It will be difficult but I'll know he's at peace and free from his covid confinement. Rest in peace brother. I Love you!

As I remember from nearly forty years ago, this is your Dad who called you his "Tiny Little Woman". Is this right, Tiny? So sorry for another loss. Love you.

Goodbye Uncle Reggie. I didn't get to see you much in our later years because we lived on the other side of the country but we have many happy memories with you in them as children growing up. God bless your family to help them grieve your loss. Hug my dad and your brother, Fred, for us in heaven. Now you can be out of pain and enjoy eternal peace.
