Linda and Family, So sorry to hear About Reggie...he was a friend and a very special person to all of us at Tomahawk Warehousing. We always went to Reggie to handle things especially when we wanted things done right! I remember his stories about all the young men he coached in football....Reggie was always proud of his boys! Reggie also told us of the great vacations you and him would take the kids on, you was very dear to him. We miss Reggie....never be another one like him! One day we will see Reggie again and when we do...he'll say:" hey....you miss me?....what took you so long!" and laugh that great laugh he always had. God Bless you all.-----Your Friends At Tomahawk ❤
