Laree was a treasured friend at the Ethel School System, Ethel, MS; all twelve years. Her talents as a basketball player were exceptional. Our Senior Year, we won The Big Black Conference Championship, thanks to Lauree's all-out efforts & team spirit. She was a competitor to be reckoned with.

She'll truly be missed at the school & class reunions. Lauree was bigger than life when she walked into the room & always had good stories to share. Due to circumstances, I'll be unable to attend.

To the Reeves family,
We are so sorry for your loss. May the loving memories you share and God's Word comfort you at this difficult time. Revelation 21:4 tells us,  one day death will be no more. That is a promise from Almighty God, Jehovah, that we can eagerly look forward to. What a joyful time that will be. Please accept our condolences.

Dear family who has lost a dead loved one, please except my condolence. Where can we go for reassurance that we might see our dead loved ones again and if so is that complete accurate knowledge true? We can go to the Bible for reassurance that soon enough we will see our dead loved ones again. At Acts 24:15 says that there will be a resurrection, this is something that we can say we cannot wait to happen. The proof we can see here is known that the Bible is inspired of God, beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight and disproving in righteousness, that is found out at 2 Timothy 3:16. The Bible is great for many things mainly it is up to us of how we use it. For more information please visit our website and have a great day.
