  1. We at the South Bay Adult Care Center were all shocked to learn of Regina’s death, we thought we had a little more time with her. She was our bright spot, always keeping us on our toes. I always kidded her that she ran the Center and I just went along for the fun. She really added spice to our lives. I have looked at the clock every day to see if it was 11 a. to give her her pills and when we went out to the park I thought how much she liked to go out and for a walk. She was always concerned that I wasn’t left behind in the dark after she went home. She is dearly missed by all of us.

  2. Where do i begin??? You were like my own mother. Your mother see me grown up since I was the age of nine. I became a family menber and I was always with the girls. I remember the time that she took me and Virgie to mass one sunday at 6 but that day father did not have a morning mass that day so we both sat on the step until it was 7. But my first memory was when I when with her and the girls to pick green beans. getting up at six was for the birds. I only last one week and after that she no longer pick beans, and the was only to get extra money so we could go to Dinseyland. I have so many memories that I could be here for day. She will always be in my heart. Like I told all of you on friday the last time I saw her was when I burid my own mother ten years ago this february. Please take care of yourself and may God help you in this time of sorrow. Love Betty
