Our hearts and prayers go out to the Reed family. We grew up as neighbors with JoJo, he liked to be called, along with his wife Aldaree, step-daughter, Eva and Step Grand-daughter,Christy. I have thought of you often, but I know how it is to lose a family member/ a loved one. My mother,as you know as Ruby Williams died a year ago, July 15,2011, and before then, Greg died October 2012, Scotty August 2003 ,then along with Timmy, another younger brother in Jan 2008 and my grand parents who just lived a couple houses down from yours. I hope each day passes, it will be easy for you all. You will always remember all the times you had with JoJo and will always keep him close to your heart. It seems hard to let go-I know, but hope in time will heal your loss and pain. I still miss my mom and brothers,but still live your life to the fullness, because we never know when it will be our time to leave this earth. Take care, and I will be in touch, Love Susie
