Losing a grandmother is a traumatic experience. The elders in our life guide us, lead our way and share their life lessons with us. Now, the family is only left with memorable experiences and dear memories. I will never forget grandma's advice on what to get John for Christmas. The expression she had on her face when she came up to our table at Trisha's wedding. Her beautiful afghans and most important the love she had for my dad. The best way to remember someone you love is with a smile on your face. Our grandmother’s soul will be happy to see you smiling as you remember her memory. Love, Tray

Thinking and praying for all of you during this time. We will always remember the times Mrs. Reid came to New Jersey. She was a great lady who touched many generations of lives with her stories. She will be missed.

With much love,

When those we love become a memory, Those memories become treasures.
Phyllis Reid will always be a most treasured memory to me. The Greatest Mother-in-law to ever live. I will miss her and treasure every moment we shared.

With deep sorrow,
Carolyn Harding
