  1. I was saddened to hear from my niece, Terri Fleetwood of the passing of Reba but rejoice she is whole again from whatever. Heaven is richer for this special lady having entered the gates. Reba and her mother, Nannie Hudson to my Beth kept the best-of-care of my darling little one who is now a grandmother of two. Reba also kept her in church nursery. They were the best. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. Travel the pathway ahead, there are no-pathways as each had their own individual one planned now for you to seek His will without this precious wife, mother, grandmother, sister or friend. Cling tightly to His unchanging and unfailing hand. Bobby Jo, I can relate with your feelings since my best-friend and husband, Tom went to Heaven 17 1/2 years ago and I can tell you it isn’t easy but our Lord and Savior will see you through each and every step.

  2. I loved my friend Reba who was like a sister to me and will miss our long conversations. My heart breaks for Bobby and family but I know Reba loved the Lord, He has greeted her with open arms and she is whole again. For that I am thankful. Until we meet again, my friend.
    Hugs and prayers for Bobby, April and Kayla.

  3. My sweet partner in crime. I will miss you sooo much! Our laughs about things and our secret little giggles. Bobby Joe, April, and Kayla my heart breaks as does y’all’s. She will never be forgotten.

    Love you,
