  1. Thank you for sharing Mr. Reese with us. Being able to talk with Mr. Reese every Wednesday night was a pleasure I looked forward to and having his cook book is a wonderful keep sake I am able to share with my girls. I know there will be a great void in your lives and I pray that God will give you comfort in the wonderful memories you must have.
