Celebrating the life of Mrs. Reba Smith Bullard, 77
Thank you for signing Mrs. Reba Smith Bullard, 77's Guestbook
Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

Daniels Drive will never be the same . Going to miss walking across the street to visit with Reba when at Mom and Dads. It was always a priority to do that. Of, course will still continue the tradition with Charles. When I first met Reba Daddy had taken me over to discuss car insurance with Charles. Reba offered me something to drink and in doing so proceeded to put ice in a glass. An ice cube dropped to the floor and with great sincerity Reba said, “I don’t know why I just don’t throw one on the floor to start with! It happens all the time!” I’ll never forget it, or her, it’s my favorite memory of her. I will miss her. I love you all and as always you remain in my heart and prayers thru this time.
