  • It was with great sadness that I read of the death of Mrs. Reinhardt. My memories of her are so special and so beautiful, just as she was special and beautiful to me. This world has suffered a great loss. My deepest sympathy to my dear friend Betty Jean and brothers, Herbert Paul and "Jimmy". How blessed I am to have known Mrs. Reinhardt and her family.

  • Paul and I were sorry to learn about the loss of your mother. We stay in Little Rock a lot, but were not here at the time of her funeral. We have thought of you often since leaving Oklahoma City. We are thinking about you and your family.
