This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Jeff Reid, 54, born on August 15, 1960 and passed away on October 31, 2014.
The background music is from a movie that Jeff liked titled Cast away. Jeff told me that he thought the movie had deep symbolism about life. Jeff said that you can be living your life and suddenly you could be stranded on an island seperated from everyone that you love. And he said that life for everyone else will simply just go on. Much like the movie, Jeff chose a life to be mostly solitary. He traveled the entire world and would adjust and create a life on whatever "island" he landed on. Thats the way he wanted it. But, he knew he was never alone. I was always there.
Jeff, we will miss you forever - Dave
"Happy Birthday JR! I remember and think of you in some way nearly every day, always with a smile and a wish that you were still here with us. Hope the sights are interesting and beautiful wherever you are, the wine is delicious, and the breeze is gentle and warm. Miss you, Love you - RJ"
"To Jeff's family. I am truly sorry for your loss. I remain in shock and have been reminded and reflected upon many memories of Jeff since finding this tribute site last week. I hope you still monitor this site and will drop me a note about Jeff's experiences, successes and sadly, his passing. I am just torn apart about this news."
"I was searching for some old friends on Facebook and came across this when looking up my old friend Jeff Reid from Atlanta. This comes as a shock! I knew Jeff when living in Atlanta in 2005-6. He was a good friend and I thought a lot of him personally and professionally. I will pray for Jeff in his afterlife and ask that he be happy. I don't know what happened but wanted you to know he influenced my life so that I have searched for him to reconnect with on this sad evening. Peace to you Jeff."
"Happy Birthday Jeff. We miss you more than words can say. When I think of the world, I think of you. Not a day goes by that Dave and I don't wonder what you would think of something happening and wish that we could share your thoughts and benefit from your wisdom. There is no one like you. You were worldly, yet humble. Elusive, yet ever present. You are deeply missed. Every day. We love you. Camron"
"Happy Birthday Jeff! What I would give to have you here with us and open some presents like we used to do! I know I will see you again. I love you my brother."
"Jeff had a huge influence on my personal and professional life which I'll literally never forget. I know that his memory will live on through a lot of people with whom he interacted with similarly.
My condolences go out to to the Reid family. This site is a great tribute and the photos are fantastic."
"On behalf of the Class of '78, Henderson High School, Jeff was a great friend to many. A truly nice man. Fond memories and R.I.P.
