I will greatly miss Reggie,for her full spirit into the many things she accomplished in her life. Reggie was my singing partner with the Oratorio Society of New York for some 15 years and St George Choral Society of New York. Each time Reggie and I talked I learned some new and amazing fates about her life, from joining the peace core becoming one of four hundred female falconers in the US at the age of 70. Reggie would always say that you are never too old to learn something new. Reggie will continue to use voice in that heavenly choral group in the sky that will the groups sound with every beat. Reggie you were very special person to me and it will hard for continue sing great music without you at my side. May your family be proud of the great person that you were and will greatly missing by those who knew and loved you.
Your singing partner.
