Doc Reed was a man of few words but you knew exactly where you stood with him. He was a loyal family friend and will be greatly missed by so many.

Thank you Doc, for the memories!

Dennis M. Reed was my best friend in the first, second and third grades at Talco. When I moved here in '05 it was fun getting reacquainted after all those years. My animals and I are sure going to miss him. He has been described as a man of few words and that is true however, if you listened closely, those few words were often hilarious . My Grandmother always told me that when you die and get to Heaven all the animals you ever loved will come running to greet you. If true, can you imagine the stampede when Doc Reed arrived. RIP good Doctor.

This is late but all the same heartfelt. We were stunned to hear of Doc Reed's passing. He, more than once calmed my fears when one of my critters had a problem. Always gentle and caring, we will never find anyone to take his place. It's tough to bear. God be with his family.
