    Uncle Reid, you will be very missed. I have a lifetime of memories of growing up with you around. You were my Mom's baby brother and she absolutely adored you. I am sad that I am just learning of your passing now and wish that someone would have tried to reach out to the family to let us know. I love you, Uncle Reid! You are finally at Peace!!
