    Dr Rea was one of my favorite professors in college and we renewed our friendship at the Center for Exercise where, until lately, he was a regular. It is just like him not to have a service of any kind but you should know that I knew him as a decent, kind, man who will be remembered fondly by hundreds of former students.

    Dear Debbie,
    Read Dr. Rea’s obit today and immediately thought of you. I know you and your Daddy loved each other very much and I think of you often.
