We have been privileged to know "Rees" and JoAnn for a number of years through our involvement with the Southeastern Shrine Provost Guard Association. Their presence at our gatherings made them much more enjoyable. "Rees" was a good friend, a great leader and touched many lives. He will be sorely missed.

I have lost the best friend I've ever had or will ever have. For 40 years we had each others back. I cannot imagine the world without Rees. I have been closer to Jo and Rees than any other people in this world. I will miss Rees till my my time comes.
