Deepest appreciation from Alan & Jane W. Reed
for kindnesses shown at the death of George "Woodie" Reed

Jane and I would like to express our deepest appreciation to everyone for the love and many acts of compassion that were shown to us both before and after the passing of my father, George ("Woodie") Reed. During his term as Chief District Highway Engineer in Somerset, Dad got to work with a lot people here and he made a lot of friends. He developed a close relationship with the state road crew plus a number of Adair County CJEís. A special note of thanks is extended to the board of education and all of our school district employees, Westlake Regional Hospital nurses and staff, the Summit Manor team, and all of our friends and neighbors who sent food, cards, gifts and/or made donations to the Parkinsonís Foundation. George had a lot of friends and he treasured every one of them. - Alan W. and Jane Reed 14 Mar 2015
