I just wanted to say that I am sorry for your loss. I remember Mr. Reeher from when I was a little girl. My family is gone for years now, but they all knew him from the old East Ward neighborhood. May your good memories comfort you in the coming days.

Dearest family,

My heart was saddened when I read of Uncle Jimmy's death in the Herald. I will always remember him as a wonderful Christian man. I remember the fond times when Aunt Mid and he took me on lay mission trips. I guess the next time I see him he can tell me all about the wonderful people he has met in heaven, especially his Jesus. May God put His loving arms around you at this time and comfort you knowing that he is where he has always wanted to be. Love you all.
