That don't sound good boss. I've heard and read online that when the tranny is going, OD goes, and I've heard that reverse is a good one to go quick too. When my tranny went, I lost 1st gear and OD, but still had everything else. Best bet, take it into a shop, have them look at it. You might get lucky, and just have to replace the governor or something. Worst case, you need to get it rebuilt. But at lest they'll have it half taken apart already.

Sorry to hear the bad news boss,

Sounds like what happened to me on my old '98. Reverse went before OD. get it looked at. Sorry to say you're probably going to need to rebuild the tranny. Dirty for the bad news. Good luck.
