Aunt Reba was the sweetest woman you would ever want to meet. I loved her sweet laugh. When you talked to her she made you feel important. We will look forward to the reunion in Heaven now. I can just see her standing by Uncle Raymond. I always called them the "Big Giant and the Little Women". The slide show was a fitting tribute. God bless you all,Martha Culberson Bashir
