Prayers to the Reed family. The Reed boys were close in life and close in death. I'm glad that they are all together again as they had a deep connection with one another. Rest in peace Monty, John & Ronnie.

I never saw Monty without a smile on his face, I am sure that Ron and John were waiting for him with open arms. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
