“I am doing a family tree and I have reason to believe that Kenneth Bernard Bowie Reed may have been my brother. I am trying to contact any known family members who may be willing to help. My prayers are with this family, regardless of how long its been. ” - Rhalanda Reed Jackson

“As best I can tell, Kenny was unofficially adopted by Orde and Eddie Dennis in Louisiana. Kenny was 2 years old when his mother died, I learned from his family. His father at one point went to L.A. to try to find him, but was no longer alive when his sister, Rhalanda Reed Jackson, found this and posted her remembrance. ” - Kathryn (Tropp) Barbour
