  1. Remember Me

    You can shed tears that she is gone

    Or youcan smile because she has lived

    You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back

    Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

    Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her

    Or you can be full of the love that you shared

    You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday

    Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

    You can remember her and only that she is gone

    Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

    You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your

    Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes,
    love and go on.

    Beautiful Reynae! Always with a smile and hug!

  2. She was such a happy loving woman. Took on the kids as if each one was her own and treated them that way till the end. She will be greatly missed.

  3. She was a great lady and took on 5 kids that wasn’t hers but treated them like they were. She done a great job at raising them. R.I.P my friend! You’re not hurting anymore and will see ya on the other side.

  4. WareBear and Melissa,
    We are so sorry to hear about your mom. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Love you!
    Denise, Mendy and Thomas

  5. Some of my happiest childhood memories are vacations spent visiting Nana and Paw Paw and my aunts and uncles; Pete, Susie, Peggy, Bobby and Brownie. I played with my cousins Barbara, Angie, Chuck, Reynae, and others. I have not seen any of my Peeples family in decades, though I often planned to make it out there. Facebook brought me back in contact, and I have followed the family for the past few years. I am thankful for these years of contact and interaction. I shall miss my little cousin Reynae. God bless all.

  6. I’m so very sorry to hear about Nae. I know Jason loved her so very much and is terribly sad. I wanted her children, sisters, brothers and extended family to know that I care and y’all are in my thoughts during this hard time.

  7. Shellie thinking of you and all of your family ! Did not have the pleasure of knowing your sweet sister. However everything I heard about her was just what a wonderful person she was . Just wanted you and your family to know I am thinking of you, and keeping you in my prayers today, and the coming weeks. Treasure all the beautiful memories ! Your friend, Beverly,

  8. I can’t belive Reynae is gone but I know she is smiling and lauging that hearty laugh of hers in the great beyond. It’s hard to belive the years flew by but I’ll always remember her sweetness , compassion and laugh. I’ll never forget all our sleepovers at grandma’s house, staying up late telling stories, and of course some good old honky tonkin in BCS/Hearn when I was at ATM. Sending you my final hug cousin…. XO
