To be known and loved by family and friends attest to the character of an individual. It was obvious from the comments in the obituary that is how others felt about Mrs. Reece. It was no doubt because of her strong faith in God and her desire to be pleasing to Him. This also makes for wonderful memories that keeps your dead love ones alive in your hearts and mind. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Also be comforted by the words stated at John 6:40 that reveals the wonderful hope for the dead, the resurrection.

Hello Reese Family, I'm a neighbor living in the area.
Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you a brief post. I too, well know the grief of losing love ones, and that at times like these, it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has really helped me to cope with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort at John 5:28,29. I hope, that when you are feeling up to it, that you are going to look up these powerful Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also, I hope that this brief note, finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
With Greatest Sympathy, Your Neighbor : P.D.Walker.
