To all of Regina's family: I am so sorry to read of Regina's passing but I know she is in a much better place. She and I had a special bond since she was in Heartland. I enjoyed taking her to Walmart when she was able and she enjoyed going with me. I visited her often but many times she was asleep and I didn't wake her. Anyway, you have my prayers and sympathy....
