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

"I am attending the HIMAA health conference in Cairns Australia today and it brought to mind the AHIMA conference at the McCormick Center in Chicago that Jeff assisted with. We booked into the Chicago South Loop Hotel from Australia as it was close to the conference center, and when I advised Jeff he was concerned about my safety in this area of Chicago.
When I arrived at the hotel there was a large Federal Express box waiting for me with what Jeff described as a survival pack that included bread, salami, ham, cheese, nuts, crackers etc, and a bottle of red wine with a Trader Joes cork screw. I sure miss Jeff, and like others think of him as being just another email away.

"Jeff - I lost you my brother 3 years ago today.  But, I know you are still with us.  I still see you sitting in my sun room, playing with our dogs, and hear your laugh. It is close to the holiday season, so I know you will be paying us visit and we will eat, drink and solve all the world's problems. And then, you will cast out on your next journey around the world. Just like you sailors always do. While the pain of this continues to slowly wash away with time, the emptiness of not having you here with us does not.  You are forever loved and missed.    Dave"

"Happy Birthday to Jeff! You're still missed, still loved, and I'm still disbelieving you're not just an email away."

"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"

"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."
