    I am saddened by the loss of Regina. She and I were really close friends at one time. We worked together at Hardee's in Norwood. And we use to spend a lot of time together. But over the years we grew apart. And I regret that so much. My heart truly goes out to Mrs. Vanessa, I always called her Ma Nessa. My heart is truly saddened. Still can't come to the reality of this. Regina will be missed but never forgotten.

    im so sorry for your loos If you can't be a bush be a bit of the grass, And some highway some happier make; If you can't be a muskie then just be a bass-- But the liveliest bass in the lake
