    May God Bless each of you, as you’re guided with comfort and strength at this time. Surely, you were blessed to have Regina in your lives since her birth. With humbleness, I thank God for the gift of having Regina in my life at a young age; but more importantly, I have never forgotten the blessing of those experiences that carried me throughout my life and the present time. I am filled with gratitude to view this miracle of being able to share–“until we meet again” as a result of the lifetime gift for each of us. All my love and blessings. Octavia Stockton

    Much love, comfort, and peace of mind to the family of Regina. Regina was a dear friend and a class mate from elementary school until high school. She has always had a heart of gold and everything I would see her brother and Mother I would always ask about Regina and when they would see me they would say Regina said to tell me hello. I was so very sorry I couldn’t make it to the home going service but I had commitments for that weekend. I pray that God will continue to bless each and everyone of her family members
