I am sorry to hear of the loss of your dear husband. I know that you will always cherish the 59 years that you had together. I don't recall that I ever met Reggie myself, but I knew of him through both you and Brandi. He must have been a really great guy. May your memories bring you peace.
That was 11 July 1970.В Reggie became a Friend, and then a very good friend
for over 48 Years. We went to many countries in the World, All over the USA,
and to many Civil War Battlefields over the years.В He really enjoyed going to
the Blakely battlefield down close to Mobile, a few miles off I-65.В We went there
while doing a Staff Visit to the unit in Fairhope,AL.
В Reggie became my MASONIC Brother, and he taught me my Masonic Lession,
all three degrees, Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft and Master Mason, at the
National Guard Armory in Opelika, with George Red Marlette helping with me
В Reggie has been called home, but he will never Die.В He will always be like
John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen, Elvis and some Red Skelton,
all rolled up into one.В One the Greatest Americans I have ever known.
He loved his Family dearly, and talked about them all the time,
Poo Girl, David, and THE PILL,В I was informed of a lot back in the early
80's.В His family gave him a really nice funeral today, at Vance Memorial.
The playing of DIXIE, on the guitar, very slow, I know was one of his
favorite tunes.В He told me years ago, the song would be played at
his funeral,В and it was,В and it was Great.
I loved Brother Reggie Wells, and I am a much better man for have knowing him
all these years.В So, with the last words of General Robert E. Lee, which was
STRIKE THE TENT, as Reggie taught me, one of many History Lessons,
BRO REG has Struck his tent, and moved on up the Heaven.
He will be missed by many, but NEVER FORGOTTEN...
Carey Daughtry,В or ROCK,В the nickname he gave me way back in 1971

В To Mrs. Wanda,David and the rest of the family, В there's nothing that can be said to ease your loss. May God be with each of you.
