You will be missed so much and we count it a blessing to have met you so many years ago here at Team Lucor. Your sweet smile and full of life touched everyone that met you. You also touched the customers at Chefella's that met you and in book club...

Rest in the arms of the Angels now Reba and I will see you again one day!
We love you...
Barbara and your Team Lucor Family!

Reba worked at Team Lucor, where I am an office admin, for many years. She was always a calm, friendly soul which was hugely appreciated. Also, she refused to let the Lucor men isolate themselves to talk about fantasy football during company events/picnics. Which was wonderful!

My heart goes out to Reba's family and friends.
