Dear Reggie,

Your challenges, your bravery and humility will travel with me as we say a momentary goodbye.
The most poignant memory I have is the one of you, me and Dad
On Glenwood a few months before ... oh, the laughter and jokes,
as only Dad could do. I have no doubt he is showing you the ropes
as I speak. Much loved by me...

Reggie, I will remember the nights with you and my mother and father, sharing pizza and wine, watching the game, or the news, or the Oscars, and talking into the night. It was such a pleasure to witness the love that bound the three of you together through the decades.
Your grateful niece,
Jackie Pitcher
