Not sure what to say?

Regina was the first to reach out and become a new friend when I moved to Oklahoma. We quickly discovered several shared interests, especially around church and knitting. She loved learning and sharing new skills, always with enthusiasm and sweet smiles. I will miss her terribly, and treasure other friends I made through her.

Regina and I met through our interest in knitting; she reached out to me to ask about The Knitters Guild of America programs. We quickly became so much more than friends. Regina camped out at the hospital from early morning to late evening when I was in a long surgery, she drove me to appointments, and dashed out in the middle of the night to bring me dry erase boards when I suddenly lost my hearing - she brought me washcloths when I was throwing up, and chewed out a couple of nurses.

I am thankful that, through working with you, Steve, I was able to get to know Regina. Her smile and gentle spirit would always meet me first, followed by her compassion for whatever I might be going through. I admire the way Regina always checked on and listened to others, even when enduring so much herself. Her selflessness and kindness made a difference and will be missed. Your family will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

Regina was a faithful member of Moore 1st United Methodists UMW women’s circle Mary/Tener. She was an inspiration to us and started the Prayer Shawl Ministry. Her bright smile and loving patience helped us to learn or hone our crocheting & knitting. She was truly a Master Knitter. Her ministry will continue. Love you girlfriend.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

I didn't know Regina but I do know Steve and he spoke of her often. She must have been a wonderful woman. He loved her very much. Rest peacefully, Regina. Our condolences to you, Steve.

Regina was also a member, teacher, and leader of the knitting groups that met at Yarnatopia on S. Western Avenue in south Oklahoma City. She met many of her closest friends there.
