    Our deepest sympathy to the Reek/Menz families and especially Jenny Reek who thought the world of her sister, Anne. May you all be comforted that Anne is now pain free and in a better place. Let your happy memories of Anne comfort you in your loss.

    I was blessed enough to be able to work with Anne in her home as her ALS progressed. I learned patience and “it is what it is” from her as well as so many other things. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with her cooking, cleaning, laundering, etc as well as getting to know her fur babies Bear, Tilly and Kia. May peace and comfort surround both her sons and all of her siblings as you work through this difficult time. I’m going to miss Anne so much….
