As an animal lover, Regina had dogs, cats and horses, as well as various wild animals she befriended. Traveling in the United States, Caribbean and Central America broadened her appreciation for the world we live in. Also, because of her travels in Central America, she was inspired to sponsor young children in need of help for many years. Regina’s kind and loving spirit endeared her to many. Love of family and her history was Regina’s greatest joy.
