I met brother Reeves at church. When I became the assistant pastor he began to call me over every Sunday morning to his seat and give me pointers on what we should do to improve the service. I have a long list sitting on my desk of things he thought we should implement. But before we start our service the drummer hits the cowbells and that lets everybody know we are ready to begin. That was one of the ideas he had... he was always thinking about how to do things better. He was funny, he was kind ,he was a good friend. I will miss you my sweet brother.
