Marlene, and family, I pray that God will give you the strength to see you through this sad and difficult time. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all.

Dear Marlene and Family:
We all loved and appreciated Handel for the pleasant and cheerful person that he was. We admired him for his professional achievements, his care and dedication to his patients. We respected him for his humility and for his love and committment to his family. I'll still remember the caring way he would nurture Gevin and his warmth and untiring devotion to Telissa. We will certainly honor and remember Handel's legacy for a long time. I hope that Marlene, Gevin, Telissa, Handel's Mother and sister, Heather,will be encouraged by our kind thoughts, prayers and reflections of a truly awesome person. Ena, NY (formerly of Andrews Memorial Church)

Dear Reynolds Family,
I just saw Handel a few weeks ago when he was in Indy. We hugged and I told him I am reminded of him everyday when I look at the clock he gave me when I left Radiology to go to CME. He just laughed and smiled - his smile was infectious. He was a gentle soul and I will miss him. My prayers are with you and your family. May God keep you in his hands and lighten your load as you travel this road.

Warm Regards,

Dear Marlene and Family

I am sorry to hear of your loss. I know the world is a lesser place without Handel. I am so blessed to have known and worked under his tutelage at IU. He was so kind and humble as he helped change the way we diagnosed breast cancer. I have great memories from my time with Handel. It is my fervent hope that all of your memories of your life with Handel are happy. You and your children are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dr. Reynolds, the day I knew I had breast cancer, you performed by core biopsy. You made me feel at ease as you and the staff worked. You were kind, loving, and full of laughter in one of the worst moments of my life. I commend you to Heaven - to Jesus - and to your family, I say I am most grateful for his life - for the loving way he served his patients that he had never met before. He was such a blessing to me in my life. I am privileged to have known him, let alone to have had him perform my biopsy. I send you love, Dr. Reynolds.

Dearest Heather,Fay,Ludlow,LJ,Telissa and Gevin. Throughout our life,every once in awhile
we meet remarkable people that leaves an indelible impression on our lives. Handel has done just that for so many people. Fay, I am so proud of the way you and your husband raised your children to be wondering human beings, just the way God intended us to be. Heather, as your friend, I know how close you and your brother were and only God can heal the wounds due the pain you feel for missing him. Thank God for his wonderful children, my prayer is that they will grow to love God first and embrace the love that so many people have for them because of the wonderful person that Handel was. His humble spirit will never be forgotten. I will never forget how lovingly, he stood by you at the hospital. I knew he wanted to make you well. Dry your tears my friend, joy cometh in the morning, and what a wonderful day that will be.
With deepest sympathy to the entire family.
