As for the attendance at the funeral, Reid said ‘It was unbelievable, unbelievable” I’m not sure you ever think that many people care, not that you’d go in that direction but it’s very humble, very humbling feeling. I know my son would feel the same way. Reid concluded by saying “ I think that’s about all I can say on that part and keep it all together”

 

The conversation went onto football and Reid said he will be on the sidelines coaching the Eagles “it’s the right thing to do, I know my son wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.” when they take Lincoln Financial Field tomorrow night in their first preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
