  • So sorry to hear of Reva passing away.

    Reva was good friends with my mom Annabelle Ferguson. They were both together at Brookdale, Mt Vernon. Reva was able to attend my parent 60th wedding anniversary party. Reva told about flying out to New Jersey and visiting my mom while my dad was travelling on business. The two went to downtown New York City and saw the Rockets!

    Reva has been a great friend to my parents.

  • Nice memories of the three musketeers, Reva, Norma and Cleta as they played many rounds of golf at Apple Valley. Always smiling. Miss them.
