OVER THE YEARS I HAVE MET ALOT OF PEOPLE WHO WORKED AT THE PLANT, I ALWAYS ASKED THEM IF THEY KNEW REGGIE RYAN, THEY DID NOT KNOW MY RELATIONSHIP TO HIM, EVERY TIME A SMILE WOULD COME TO THEIR FACE AND A STORY WOULD FOLLOW. AFTER THE GREAT STORY I WAS ALWAYS SO PROUD TO SAY HE WAS MY UNCLE. I LOVE YOU ALL AND HE WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS AS ARE ALL OF YOU.

Now Uncle Reggie, you and Effie are together again.
Rest in peace.
I remember when you drove in a snow storm to Grandma Collis house to pick me up so I could go out new years eve with my boyfriend. Not to many Uncles would do that. I will never forget.
I thank you.

Love,
Gloria Hankey
