Default Virginia Reeves

To the VAF Family,
Doug asked me to pass on word that his mother, Virginia Reeves, passed away last night in Cypress, near Houston. Doug will be off the VAF for a few days, understandably, as he attends to his family. I will tell you that this hits him hard, but that he and the entire Reeves Family appreciate all the well wishes and support that has flowed from the VAF.

Prayers for the Reeves Clan.

Was afraid of that when I saw a re-run of the front page.

Sad news indeed.

Mothers are a unique species. They go through great pain to give us life. They work hard to keep us safe. The worry with every step we take as we spread our wings. Even when we have flown away, they never stop looking out for us. And when they are no longer visible to us, they are still watching.

Our thoughts are with the Reeves clan.
