Aunt Regina you touched my life in such a special way, words can not begin to describe my appreciation for you. I only wish to be half of the woman, and fighter you were. Honestly an inspiration to all. I still hang on tight to your words of wisdom from that late evening phone call and I will only continue to live by your advice. I love you with every piece of my heart. I can't wait for the day we meet again. Rest in Paradise beautiful.
