Love from Santa Fe

Reese was a true friend. A lifelong friend that I am deeply saddened to let go of. At this time I am reminded that impermanence is the only constant in life.

Blessings all 💚Today a dear friend was laid to rest. I am in Santa Fe and regretfully not present at Reese's service but know that my heart is with you all.


Id like to share some things from my heart and a eulogy for Reese Neader


These past few days I've had a heaviness in my heart that has called for deeper meditation and reflection of life, purpose and connection. When I think about Reese and the qualities he shared, I am brought to a deep sense of gratitude for knowing him. I admired his ability to speak his truth and his willingness to be vulnerable and step into the limelight. He had a lot of courage and lived a life of passion. He was a brilliant storyteller and conversationalist and had a larger than life personality.


I am flooded with memories of our time together over the past 15 or so years. I miss the high school parties where his band performed Sweet Jane. I miss the politics science course at OUL where he was smarter than our professor and could out debate anyone who tried to go up against him...especially after a morning cruise. I miss the rooftop happyhours and networking events in DC that turned into all night drink fests in JoEllen's apartment. Most of all I will miss the spiritual connection that formed between us as adults and his ability to go deep into the understanding of conscious awareness.


Reese was a true friend. A lifelong friend that I am deeply saddened to let go of. At this time I am reminded that impermanence is the only constant in life.


Reese, may your spirit be purified into the energy of pure bliss. May your legacy live on to inspire and provoke others to look inward and express their passion and the purpose. May your laugh and presence continue to live on in the memories and stories that we share on this day and everyday. May all your friends, family, coworkers and acquaintances find peace, knowing that you're energy exists freely and in alignment with the energy of our source creation.

Yours Truly,
Lulu
