    I was so saddened to hear of the loss of my special friend Reba. I delivered food to her and Harry every Tuesday for the past several years. We had so many great visits. She loved talking about her family. Her home was my favorite stop on my route. I also loved talking to Harry...I will miss him so much and would love to know where he will be living so I can visit him someday. Reba was one incredible lady and I know you will all miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with Harry...I know he must be having a difficult time. Please give him a big hug for me. All my love, Lynne

    So sorry to read about your mother's death. Her name came up when I was talking with Ann Lynn Chapman a few weeks ago. I saw your mother out in the yard a few years ago and now I wish that I had taken a few minutes and stopped to reintroduce myself to her. You all were fortunate to have her with you for 96 years.
