  • To Charles, Jr. and the Reaves Family : The world has lost a wonderful and great man. Mr. Reaves was my father’s great friend from their childhood days. I have known him all my life. They worked after hours on cars, washing machines, and any other machine to make extra money for their families. They would not finish a job until it was done properly. The were meticulous in their attention to detail. They treated everyone well no matter who they were. Mr. and Mrs. Reaves were a devoted couple who always were together. We would visit their home often when I was growing up. Mr. Reaves served faithfully at St. Paul’s Baptist Church in Little Rock. Your parents were always nice and kind to me. Your dad would always greet me with that big honest smile of his. He seemed so happy to see me. I will miss him greatly. Now he is reunited with Mrs. Reaves and my parents in Heaven. I can imagine my father and Mr. Reaves in heaven arguing over how to repair a car and my mother and Mrs. reaves talking in the background. May he Rest in the Peace of Christ . Reginald Rogers
