I am so sorry for your loss. It was such a pleasure getting to know Mrs. Reves at Brookdale Nursing Home. Every 2nd Tuesday of the month I came with a group from Westwood Baptist to sing about Jesus and have devotions there. Mrs. Louise always participated and she ministered to us. She will not be forgotten.

Charles and Fidelia, I wanted to let you know I am thinking of you and praying for you on the loss of Mrs. Reves. 98 years is a very long life and 72 years of marriage is almost unheard of. Enjoy your good memories. Take care of yourselves.

Your neighbor, Cindy Freeze
