I have so many fond memories of Mrs. Reid (old fashioned southern respect kept me from calling her Shirley). I first met Brian at Southeast Memorial Hospital where he worked as an orderly. He and I began a very close friendship that lasted until his untimely death. Diane starting working in the Emergency Room and we also became close friends and shared an apartment for a while. During that time, we would go to the Reid's and raid their kitchen of produce from the farm...I remember one summer we were low on funds (which was quite often) and ate a LOT of watermelon. My sister still talks about how good the potatoes from the farm were. But through it all, Mrs. Reid was a constant...she was strong of spirit, a great business woman, kind, and caring. Going to the Reid's house was always a treat and was like going home (my parents lived in CO). Sunday dinners were very special to me. Mr. Reid was a great man too, but if you knew him, you knew he was the strong, silent type, but Mrs. Reid was the talker of the family! I will always remember them all so fondly.
