      Sending condolence to my family. When I heard of his loss I was in shock I’ve known Reggie most of my life. But recently got to work with him at Providence Baptist Church and when I tell you in rehearsal there wasn’t a dry moment. He would speak life into you and push you to be greater, I appreciated that about him. To my Aunt Esther I love you dearly and to his children and grandchild I’m sorry for your loss May the peace of God and the strength of God be with you. Sending all of our love and hugs and kisses from Elgin Williams and Tiffany williams’

    My prayers are with Aunt Queenie and the Jones family. Reggie had a good heart and could really play the hammond organ. I am blessed to have been able to serve with him at Latter Rain C.O.G.I.C., when he was the organist for our youth choir. I will alway remember his sense of humor. As you take your rest in the arms of Jesus, we will continue to thank God for you and your family.
