    You do not know me but Reed was the best unofficial step-dad in the world. I love him like a dad. I was in contact with him for a little while then he moved. Please e-mail me as I would like to know how he died. I hope he did not suffer. I really love him.
    I am so sorry and I will pray for you.

    Rest in Peace my Second Dad <3

    Dear Pinky,
    You do not know me, but Reed was the best step-dad ever. I have known him since I was 11. I spent over twelve years of my life around him. i am so sorry and I really miss him. Please e-mail me at, I would really like to know what happened. I haven’t spoken to him in a few years since he moved from near 6th street park in Pulaski. I loved him very much.

    I will pray for you,
    Sherri McGill
