  3. Gina,
    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. She sure was a pretty lady and, from what I’ve read, a wonderful mom and grandmother. May she rest in peace. Prayers to you and your family.

  4. Revelation 21:4
    And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

  5. I am sorry this is so late but, it was only this afternoon that we learned of our beautiful Regina’s passing. She will surely teach the angels to sing! We had the pleasure of meeting Regina and Bob about twenty years ago and they were our wonderful neighbors on Daniel Island. News that Regina was dealing with a health problem had reached us but, we didn’t really know how sick she was. We pray for the comfort of her family most especially the grandchildren. God bless and keep you.
