    Our hearts go out to the Schulke family. MariBeth and Reed were the first neighbors we met when we moved to Eden Prairie. They stopped by to meet and greet us, and our paths crossed many times during our 11 years in the neighborhood. We’re so sorry for the many challenges you’ve faced over the years, and the final challenge of losing Reed, a man who was treasured by so many. All our sympathies.

    Both Reed and you -Maribeth have been a source of inspiration for us over the years. We will miss Reed and know that our fond memories of work parties, camping trips , pontoon rides on the lake, and walks on the beaches in Jamaica will always be special to us. Our love to Reeds family❤️
