To the Reed Family, Thanks for letting us be a part of the family. These past few months have been extra hard for all; especially Tony. Remember the good and not so good times, keep busy, keep in touch, stay happy. To say that we are "sorry" for your loss is an understatement, but sent with love. He is in peace now. Keep strong as you can. Love to all.

Dear Pat, We were so sorry to learn of Tony’s passing. In the time we came to know him, we were impressed with his courage and love of life and family. Alex saw his progress at the gym and on the golf course which makes his death all the more difficult to comprehend. Now, our thoughts are with you and we pray that your grief may be tempered by the memories of your 50 years together. Roe and Alex

Dear Pat, We are truly saddened to hear of the passing of Tony. It was with overwhelming joy that we just celebrated his win over cancer, it was not to be. What a delightful man, he will be missed. The unbearable sadness that is yours, I hope, will be replaced in time with beautiful memories and a promise of reuniting at some future time. With love and sorrow, Lola and Bob
