She lived her beliefs through her actions, treating everyone she met with an unwavering kindness that left a lasting impact. Her selfless nature was evident in the way she conducted herself, never hurting a person in her life and always putting others before herself.
Reda Mae's interests were as diverse as they were passionate. She found joy in the serenity of fishing, and boating, and playing cards. Her love for numbers was more than just a profession; it was a pastime that brought her great pleasure.
