  1. Phil, Debbie and Ricky, We are so sorry to hear about Reedie. We have fond memories of when we all went camping and Jeep riding. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time.
    Robert and Louise Roseborough

  2. Phyllis, So sorry to hear of Reedie’s passing, yet by his testimony, we know where he is today. Will never forget the first time he came into my office & I looked at him & said ‘HELLO, MR WILSON’. He & I just had a big laugh about it and it just kinda stuck from then on. You two were such a joy to be around & I will always remember him and his old vehicles he enjoyed so much. I have missed seeing you both over the past few years. When you came in to pay your insurance, you were very uplifting to me & cherished your friendship. Our paths crossed for a season, and I am so glad they did. Jesus will be your comforter & strength in the days ahead. Please take care of yourself. Can’t be there for the funeral, but you & your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
