Regina , my love
My wife

Merry Christmas, I miss you so much
Our first Christmas apart physically and the pain in not bearable

Your my best freind and I would give anything to hold your hand one more time . The tradition of setting up under the tree tonight and waking up to the children’s faces will not be there

I shared this together with my best freind YOU and it has been taken away from us , it hurts so much

I did my best with some presents for the children and received a welcome surprise from Tom, Betty & Niki . Under these circumstances they took upon themself and helped out . Wow , what a family . They went out of there way and picked up several nice surprises that the children will open in the morning . I knew nothing until I was half way home after there fish feast this evening

Again , I say what a FAMILY

Regina , I love and miss you so much
Please know , I look forward to looking into your eyes again one day and letting you know how much I love you and miss you

I knew I loved you when we were together but to think a person can miss a person the way I miss you is not explainable

I love & miss you so much
Love your husband & Best freind,
Tommy

My forever friend Regina you will be missed and the memories will be cherished forever and ever. When I first heard the words celebrate their life when someone dies, I just couldn’t connect to it because I was so deep in the sadness of the loss as I am now, but losing you has has given me a complete understanding of celebrating a life, You my friend I will celebrate going forward when the tears dry up, in stories about my memories of our friendship and by staying for just one more, lol, I will hear your words “Ya can’t worry about everything Maggie” and “just do it Maggie” lol.
Your personality and zest for everything in life screams celebration, Your bright and colorful existence will always shine when I think of you.
Your parting words of I love you girl I will hold on to forever. Rest In Peace my friend❤️
Love you too❤️❤️
Margaret (Maggie) Hooper😊

We are so sorry for your loss. My heart is so heavy, just trying to understand what you all are going through. My earliest memories are with Gigi, Betty, Niki and of course my God Parents, Aunt Cookie and Uncle Jay. I have the best memories from Birthdays, Halloweens, Holidays, weekend sleepovers, to summers at the CYO to playing Man Hunt in our close neighborhood the friendships we made are life long. Last night I was thinking of a time I went to the house and Regina was making dinner, my Aunt was at work and she was cutting Onions, I did not know that onions can make you cry, hey I was 14 I did not know. I asked her what is the matter, are you ok? Why are you crying? She said nothing is wrong it is because of the onions. No really what is the matter, why are you crying you can tell me? Regina started laughing, Wendy I promise it is because of the onions, you dont know this? Here you chop this onion, those were the strongest onions I ever chopped, my eyes started burning and tearing up, oh hell no, you finish this I told her and we laughed so hard, she said you have it to easy I am going to tell your Mom you need to help her more. We sat there talking about Stephanie 1st Birthday that was going to be happening, just a moment in time that just came to me. My life changed soon after that we moved to New Mexico, and like my Aunt Cookie would say, my God they might as well have moved you to Mars. We recently reconnected and I will always be grateful for that. I will love you always and forever Regina, please give our Parents big kisses for me.

Our families have shared so many laughs and so many wonderful times together. There was no better party than a Daly party! Regina treated EVERYONE as family. Our great times together started many years ago. Thank you giving us those beautiful memories. They will always make us smile. The whole Daly clan is in our prayers and forever our family.

The world has lost the brightest ray of light. And heaven has the sweetest, kindest and funniest angel.

Rest peacefully my beautiful friend. Love you Regina.
Love, Dave, Karolyn and Julia Earley
