Please accept my deepest sympathy on Reggie's passing. I am Aunt Joan's pastor in PA and over the past months we have constantly held Reggie and you all up in prayer. We will continue to hold you all in prayer during this time of grief. May you continue to feel God's presence, comfort and love in the days ahead. Peace, Pastor Diana

There is nothing we can say to adequately express the sorrow we feel at the loss of our Reggie. He has always been a child of my heart, but we know that our loss is truly God's gain.

Mrs. Bashur, I was honored to work on campaigns or in offices with Reggie in Austin. I think I shook the first time I met him, as his teddy bear heart sometimes hid behind a scowl. I eventually learned not to be afraid of him, but to learn from him. I admired him greatly, as did so many others who had the privilege of working with him. Now he's advising somebody, somewhere in heaven. I am so sorry for your loss.

Reggie, I take comfort in the thought that you are now resting in the arms of the angels, with your mom and dad at your side.

We'd all be better off if everybody did politics the way Reggie did.

Dear Mrs.Bashur,
We have a hope for our dead loved ones. For Jesus said:"Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice  and come out. "(John 5:28,29)

Mrs. Bashur and Family - You are all in my thoughts and prayers in such a big way. Reggie was always very kind to me while walking the halls of the State Capitol, and I shall miss his presence very much. He made our profession better.

Dear Jan,
Our family is blessed to have your family as our neighbor. We’ve had the joy of watching your children grow. Bryan, Will and Kathleen are wonderful children. They are respectful, honest and full of integrity. A beautiful reflection of their father. I’m sure Reggie is looking down with pride knowing his wonderful spirit is shining brightly and will carry on through the joy of his life... You and the Kids. God Bless.

Dear Jan and Family, you are in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. I am blessed to have known Reggie for 20-plus years. I have relied on his steady and wise counsel more times than I can count. We met on the gubernatorial in 1989 and, I must say, he scared me to death at first! He didn't talk if nothing needed to be said and he did not suffer fools! But, one quickly saw the heart of gold and learned
