Dearest family, I am a patient of Dr.Howell where cousin Darlene works, I was there on the 29th and Darlene told me of her loss, I was very saddened as she talked about him. I hope you made many memories to help you until you reunite one day. God Bless You All. I will be thinking of you as you have to move forward without your special person.

Mr. Reggie, you was one of the strongest persons. No matter how hard the fight was you was willing to fight. You took me in as your own child the second Jared and started dating. And I am now blessed to be a part of an amazing family. We will all miss you more than you ever know. But as they say, “it’s not goodbye it’s I will see you later.”
