I can still hear her sweet voice greeting me at church or at an MC music event, and those sweet hugs.....
Mama Reba was truly a virtuous woman and a true example of kindness and love. These characteristics were passed on to her children and grandchildren. May the family find peace and comfort throughout the coming days.
