What a beautiful memorial to Reva whom I remember as a lovely, quiet person and who everyone enjoyed. Her personality was one of a sincere, genuine person that everyone enjoyed. There is no doubt that she will be missed so much by not only her family but also her friends. Please accept condolances from the Bay Springs High School Class of 1948.
