You were my morning friend, your smile my sunshine when we were at the General Store getting breakfast at the same time. I looked forward to your beautiful smile every morning. Now I will see that sunshine every day, knowing you are out of pain. Rest In Peace, Regina. Our friendship was limited in scope, but never in smiles and joy. You will be missed, dear lady.
