Robert Louis Stevenson said, “Like a bird singing in the rain, let grateful memories survive in time of sorrow.“ This quote reminded me of her. Reva was a wonderful woman. Whose legacy, to me, is one of generosity. Generous with wisdom, laughter and love. Even in times of strife her generosity never weaned like a bird singing its ballad in the rain. I am grateful to have heard the song.
