    I have so many good childhood memories of your family: climbing the big magnolia tree in the front yard; playing under the water hose on a hot summer afternoon; seeing all the wrapped Christmas presents under the beautifully decorated tree. Your Mom was always at the center of those memorable moments. The Regan family will always be a part of my childhood and those memories. My love and condolences to your family at this great loss.

    Growing up in Pensacola Aunt Thora somehow came out as Aunt Sowee … go figure. She was a strong women who put up with much in her life. She was always sweet to me, had a good sense of humor and made the best fried eggs I’ve ever had. I will miss her Christmas cards but she will always hold a special place in my heart. Much love and sympathy to Judy, Susie, Katie, Cathy, Shirley and my dear Aunt Emily.
