Escort group to meet hearse bearing Anthony & Tammy Reece

Chief Jason Cross will announce estimated time of arrival at Columbia Walmart when he receives word from Grissom-Martin Funeral Home. At the present the latest estimated time may be 4pm-5pmCT but could be earlier.

An escort is being organized to escort the hearse bearing the bodies of Anthony & Tammy Reece from Columbia Walmart, 2988 Burkesville Road, Columbia, KY into Columbia via Burkesville Road & Street, through the Square to Grissom-Martin Funeral Home, 200 Burkesville Street, Columbia, KY.

Stacey Melton said that a large number of RZRs and other side-by-sides will make up the main body of the escort, which will include rollbacks and possibly other vehicles from Anthony's Auto Sales, and boats that the Reeces loved so much.

She is asking any others with RZRs or other appropriate vehicles to contact her at 270-378-0520 if they wish to participate.

She said that the vehicles from Anthony's Auto Sales are being given a gleaming cleanup. "Anthony was insistent on everything he owned being squeaky clean. He wouldn't have it any other way," she said.

Stacy Melton said that the outpouring of love for Tammy & Anthony Reece has been overwhelming. "They were both deeply loved," she said.

Jason Cross, Columbia Chief of Police, said that the police have been requested by the family to provide an escort and they will do so.

The hearse from Grissom-Martin Funeral Home will be coming north through Burkesville, KY.

Chief Cross said that Grissom-Martin Funeral Home will let him know the approximate time they will be needed.
