FLORAL TRIBUTES FOR JIM REEVES AND DEAN MANUEL  ON 31 JULY  2007  

 

JIM REEVES MEMORIAL CARTHAGE, TEXAS

 

 

In commemoration of the 43rd 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 floral tribute for Mary Reeves at the 8th anniversary of her death, and the names of all contributors will go on the card attached to it.
