Strong NFL Presence Expected At Garrett Reid’s Services

Eagles past and present are expected to join representatives from across the NFL Tuesday at the services for Andy Reid‘s oldest son, Garrett.

Donovan McNabb is planning to attend. He’ll join Ike Reese and several other former Eagles of the Andy Reid era.

As for the current group, the Eagles will be running buses from both Lehigh and the NovaCare Complex to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Broomall for Tuesday’s 10 a.m. service.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has inquired about the arrangements, according to the Eagles. Steve Mariucci is expected, as are a dozen or more members of the Cleveland Browns organization.

The service is not open to the media or the public.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the domestic-violence prevention agency Laurel House, at Box 764, Norristown, PA 19404.

      Police escorts always salute the casket as it goes by…..no matter who the deceased is. It is simply a respect thing.

      Maybe you should have kept your comment private?
      How long has the trooper known the Reid family? Has Andy made an impact on any way on a state trooper’s life, or their office?
      I’d be willing to bet that the trooper was there for the human being, not for crimes or because he did something honorable.
      When you’re telling someone else how to run their child’s funeral, you should probably think to yourself…”Anything that is going to come out of my mouth right now is worse than any opinion I have.”
