Seagator at work

At 85, Reed inspires me! He doesn't let diabetes get in the way. I finally met him today in St. Augustine. I visited him and then we headed out for lunch!

Reed wakes up every morning, welcomes all the new people in the community, and wishes all the birthday boys and girls a happy birthday!

Pretty fancy computer setup for Mr. Gator. Not only does he do b'days and welcomes, but also checks in with all of his Reedsville friends with words of kindness and encouragement.
