    My deepest condolences to the Reed Family. I was brought up in Barton’s Creek Baptist Church as a child and was fortunate enough to attend church with both Dot and Earnest Reed. May god wrap his loving arms around Dot and may she feel his presence during this most difficult time. Comfort for his wife, children and grandchildren as well.
