In the summer they spent countless weekends at the cottage on Conesus Lake making lasting memories with an amazing extended family.
Dud and Reg loved their time together and made a great team! They worked on numerous home projects and had a wonderful, fun-filled life with family until his passing in October 1998.

Reggie has spent countless hours happily serving her family, many beloved friends and also many members of her church. Reggie could do anything and was always happy. She will be forever remembered for her willingness to help others, her happy welcoming personality, her love for all, her smile, and her wonderful sense of humor. We feel blessed to have had our dear Reggie in our lives and to have witnessed her Christlike example to everyone.
Mom, we love you and will miss you so much but we rejoice in the knowledge that you are now together forever with Dad, catching him up on the last 25 years. Until we meet again, we will be waving to you as you go. All our love always.
