Regina was half sister to my father and we did not meet until a few years ago, when I was researching family history. She (perhaps unwisely) invited me, a complete stranger, to stay overnight at her home so we could get to know each other. She was a lovely woman, and we stayed in touch via email for several years, but lost contact.
I was so sorry to read of her death.
