I knew Reba as a child growing up in Texarkana. My memories of her are that she was a really sweet girl. I am very sorry for her family.

I was just thinking about Reba the other day. I was so sad to hear of her passing. She was a true advocate for the veterans. She was the first person I met when I first came for my interview at the Texarkana clinic 18 years ago. Praying for you and the rest of the family during this time of loss. Much aloha.
