According to her Facebook page, Reed grew up in Carol City, graduated from American Senior High School and moved to Opa-locka after she finished at the job corps. Her friends say she was sweet, full of life and hilarious.

Nina Serafina, who also met Reed at the Homestead Jobs Corps, said Reed was the life of any party and “loved to dance her heart out.”

“She was like a mom,” she said. “Tell you when you wrong even if you don’t want to hear it.”

Her friend’s death left her crying “like a baby,” she said.

“The whole city loved her,” she said.
