I had the good fortune in my life to be accepted by the Reeves family as a part of their own. Bud was one of the best men I have ever known. I mourn the loss but celebrate the man.

TO CHARLOTTE, & family! I am so sorry to learn of Mack’s passing! I always had some funny & fun times, when Mack would shop with me at Walmart!! He was in the store one day when one of my friends had just sneaked up behind me & it scared me so bad!! So after that, about every time he came in, he made sure he slipped up & scared me! He would laugh & laugh about that! Also our love of BAMA FOOTBALL 🏈!! Mack was a good man & I loved him & his family very much!! Sending my love & prayers to you all!! May God lay his hands of comfort, mercy & peace on each of you 🙏🏻❤️
