"The Reed and Houghton family relationship goes back generations – as my grandfather bounced Amo on his knee working for the Houghton family more than 90 years ago.
However, our relationship with Amo goes even deeper than that. Amo was a classmate of my father and mother, but more importantly, Amo was my mentor and friend.
Washington still has much to learn from his legacy. A legacy of common sense governing through respected bipartisan friendships and political civility. A legacy where our country comes first and our political party a distant second. Our nation has lost a true hero, and our hometown of Corning has lost a great ambassador. He will be missed by all." - Tom Reed
