To Laurie, Bryan and your families,
You are in my thoughts and prayers at this time of sorrow upon the death of your mother. I have fond memories of Reed family picnics at your home in Johnstown. Of course, your mom and dad (my Aunt Ruth and Uncle Blair) always made those occasions special for all of us.

Mrs. Reed was such a lovely woman. I remember visiting her at her home in Johnstown over the years. She will be sorely missed.
