We will always remember the good times we had growing up together running between Wythe Street and Crater Road. Another Blandford treasure has made it over. May he rest in peace.

    We send our prayers for the family. Some things will never be forgotten, like the brilliance of his smile, the kind-hearted strength, and the heart and soul felt in your hugs. Thankful for every memory. We send our prayers up for our family, praying that the peace of God and comfort of the Holy Spirit give strength and ignite light in all of us carrying the torch of legacy as he passed the legacy on in his children, grandchild and in those who had the opportunity to be in his presence. We love you all. With Love,

    Sleep in Peace Daddy Reginald, condolences to you Cortni, Lil Reggie and the rest of family!

    “A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth. It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart. Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better. The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.”
    ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭7:1-4

    “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
    ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭4:13-18
