Rea will be forever in my thoughts every time I go into work and look at Register 8 (formally Register 10) known as Smoke Shop.
I loved her girlish grin and professionalism.
She and I had many conversations about work and our families.
On many occasions I would have just gave up at Walmart. Her advice and wit got me thru many days over the last 3 years 10 months that I have known her.
There is no doubt in my Mind
“She is with Jesus and everyone who passed from this World ahead of her.”
I felt blessed to know her and work with her.
I pray for her family members and friends in their time of mourning.
Please know all the Cashiers who worked with her and every co- worker at our Walmart will miss her very much.

Rea and I go back many years. I always enjoyed her company and have many pleasant memories. She was such a caring person and at work always asked "Are we having fun yet"..My prayers to all of you, I know she will be missed.

I was shocked to see this on Facebook yesterday, and I recognized Rea immediately. I missed her today at Walmart. She was nearly always my cashier and I marveled that she was always there. She was always pleasant and efficient. She will be missed by many.
Peace and comfort to her family.
