Personal note from Mildred Harrell
A Portion of My Heart and Soul Is Gone
Reggie, I wish I could wake up and see you standing there. Then I would know that it was a terrible nightmare.
I remember when you were young and had a head full of hair that I loved to comb and braid and you would fuss about it. I remember the times you spent with me, Lonnie and your Dad traveling to different states for karate tournaments and you hating to go, but winning first place in each state and making us proud, and as time passed, you grew older and became a man.
We had 49 years of memories that I will treasure and keep forever safe in my heart.
We shared a bond that time and distance can never break apart.
Oh how my heart aches so. I would love to have you back and never let you go. Right now, where there was happiness, all I feel is sadness and pain. I long to hear your voice, corny jokes and see your beautiful smile. It would be great to have you back.
Until the day that I see you again, I know that God, your Dad, both Grandmothers and Grandfathers, along with aunts and uncles in heaven will take care of you until we meet again and discuss how to set up a firestick and other electronics like we use too.
Lonnie, Reg, Marcus, your niece, nephew, grandchild and I, along with a host of relatives and friends Love You and will Miss You Forever and you will always be in our hearts.
