The five LaChance boys have fond memories of Ma and Pa Reid. We spent so much time together with Dan, Bruce, Steve and Sue and have literally thousands of fond memories. It was a distinct pleasure to accompany Dan and Dave together with my father on the Badger Honor flight. I saw Dave several times in recent years at the veteran's ceremonies at Traxler Park. Despite his vision issues, he could recognize my voice.
Charlene and I have great memories of the rhubarb and bunching onions he planted at our home.
The Reid's were one of a kind and true friends to our entire family. Ma and Pa are greatly missed
