FLORAL TRIBUTES FOR JIM REEVES AND DEAN MANUEL  ON  JULY 31, 2006  

 

JIM REEVES MEMORIAL CARTHAGE, TEXAS

 

 

In commemoration of the 42nd anniversary of the deaths of Jim Reeves and Dean Manuel, floral tributes have been made by fan club member Carolyn Morris.

On July 31th, Butch and Carolyn Morris took Jim's wreath to his grave and placed it there. 

The total amount of the donations exceeds the costs for both tributes and postage, Carolyn  only charged the materials used. The excess amount will go into a fund for a flower vase in matching colours, to be put at Dean's grave.
