Our prayers go out to the Reed family, we would like to express our condolences at this time to your family. The Bible is a great source of encouragement at times like this, a comforting thought is at Revelation 21:4 "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away"

Cris, I was shocked to hear about Pete's passing, I'm so sorry. Since I retired last year I've been writing my memoirs, mostly for ,y kids so they can understand where I came from. A couple of my remembrances are about Pete, or Pete and Tony. With Pete's passing, I'll be sure to do him justice. God Bless You and the children!
