  1. Dear Reed family, I’m sorry for your loss and you have my deepest condolences. The loss of a loved one brings great pain and sorrow but you can gain comfort from Gods word the Bible. Acts 24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection” so you can see your dear loved one again. A promise from our loving Heavenly Father. I hope this was a source of encouragement for the family.

  2. Kathy, so sorry to hear of Terry passing. I worked with him for 20 years at Holnam and had a lot of respect for him. Terry was Terry…he didnt pretend he was anyone else. He helped my husband and I with several computer problems.. I considered him a good friend. If we can do anything for you, please let us know. Love and hugs.
