  1. Aunt Florence,

    If the angels serve Sunday breakfast (I hear that they do) then you are having it now with Buddy, Helen, Charles Franklin, Grandma, your Papa, and Uncle Bob. We all love you. Save us a seat at that table.

    Your loving niece

  2. Catherine Ann (I know see you go by Kate),

    I want to offer my sympathies to you and your family. I stopped at the funeral home on Thursday hoping to see you, but Doug told me you
    returned home. My sister Mary Jo, Maureen and my brother Tom also stopped to offer their sympathies. Your mom was a wonderful
    lady. I remember all the good times you, Maureen and I had at your house.

  3. Dear Beth & Family,

    We were so sorry to hear of the passing of your sweet momma. We have fond memories of her sweet smile & caring for you & your family when you lived next door to us. I can still remember her sitting with you out in the front yard always looking the lady.
    Our thoughts & prayers are with you all.

    Sincerely with love,
    Chuck & Joy Culbertson

  4. Dear Dee;
    Our hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. We pray that you will find peace during these days ahead.

  5. Dear Diana: I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. I love you.

  6. Even subtraction is never loss,
    just addition somewhere else:
    five sparrows take away two,
    the two in someone else’s
    garden now’

  7. Grandma was the lighthouse that watched over her family, and an anchor for my mother over the years. May she rest in peace.

  8. It only took a five minute converation with (MA) to know that you were in the presents of someone special. With her enthusiastic smiles and twinkling eyes that would always make you feel good about yourself and always ending with a hug.Life for my children and I will never be quite the same with out ma but we are better people for loving her and being loved by her. Jay

  9. Mrs. Reeves was such a special lady. Her warm smile and twinkling eyes were hard to resist. The adjective ‘twinkling’ is so fitting, I am the third person to use it in describing her! Everyone who knew her, or even just met her, had to love her. Doug, I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a wonderful mother, and the best mother-in-law to my sister, Linda. She truly was hard to beat! She will be missed…

  10. My mother-in-law was the kindest, warmest woman. She welcomed me with open arms and an open heart. I will be always grateful for her wise words and loving ways.

  11. Our heavy hearts to Mrs. Reeves and her family. It was wonderful being neighbors with you on Augustine Street and continued the friendship at Sunday breakfast at Olympia. Sad year for the passing of the Moms.

  12. our prayers are with all of you. Mrs. Reeves, was a very special lady. everyone who know her touched many lives. i had her at holy rosary when she was teaching day care for the church and i helped her out very wonderfull person. god’s blessings. Love Judy,Ed and family (Lancaster) Potash

  13. She had a face I thought could only smile, a heart that could only love. I will never forget the fun on Augustine St., Stony Brook Park, and walks down Seneca Parkway to Maplewood Park. I was proud to have her as my Aunt. Rest in Peace Aunt Florence,
    Robert J.

  14. Sunday at 2 p.m. In her own bed with her children at her side.  She got her wish to go to sleep and never wake up.

    My sister and I had the gift of spending her last night with her.  We found her journals that she left for us and spent the evening reading them out loud to her.  How cool it was to read in her own words how much joy all her children brought her!

    Sunday morning breakfast was always her favorite … I am not sure what i will do on Sundays without her.

    Thank you all for your kind words of support.  Moms are the one person you know that truly love you.

    Diana (dee)

  15. Thinking of Kate and her family, today and in the days ahead. It’s so hard to lose a Mom.

  16. Those twinkling eyes and soft smile in the photo instantly transported me back 45 or 50 years to wonderful times with my best 3rd grade buddy, Aimee. Your mom was so pleasant and welcoming to me (and my barbie dolls). I hope that your ‘mom’ memories will always bring smiles to your faces.

  17. To all of the Reeves family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss, and I know she is in a better place, and reuniting with Bob, and with all of her friends including Mom. I know they had a lot of laughs together. And we had a lot of memories from Augustine St. My prayers are with you all

  18. To Family,
    Please accept my sincere condolences .I would like to offer you some hope in these difficult times. Psalm 55:22 says ‘Throw your burden upon God himself and He Himself will sustain you. Never will he allow the righteous one to totter ‘ After sin and death entered the world God revealed that it was his purpose that the dead be restored to life by means of a resurrection .In Hebrews 11:17-19 Jehovah God also promised in His Word that ‘ The meek ones themselves will possess the earth and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace’ Psalm 37:11
    I really hope that God’s promises will help and comfort you.

  19. We will always remember Florence’s smiling face. She did a remarkable job running the Holy Rosary Sunday School. It was fun volunteering with her. She taught us well about caring for children. We always appreciated her referring us to couples for babysittin jobs. Our Dad always enjoyed playing Santa Claus for the annual School Christmas party, and we knew that Florence enjoyed it. God has a bright new angel with him, and she will be missed here on Earth.
