On behalf of my family, I would like to Thank each and everyone of you personally for the love and kindness you have shown our Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Aunt, Great Aunt, Rose L. Regina, better known as Mom, Grandma Ro - Ro, or simply "Regina" to her PS 244 family and friends
Funny there wasn't a place we would go that we didn't run into one of My Mother's PS 244 children,or parents of children, They would immediately call her by name, give her a great big hug, and remind her that she looks the same, and hasn't changed a bit! And as you know, she always looked the same, and the years were kind to My Mother.
Remember, My Mother was a fixture at PS 244 for the last 59 years.
With that being said, even with the sadness we are feeling fight now, I was you to
Smile and Celebrate My Mother.
I'd like you to know that MY Mother was 87 years old, and that the life she created for herself changed last October when she fractured her wrist. MY Mother was never sick,
and only recently needed medical care.
This is why I say let's celebrate her life, because My Mother was Blessed to have lived a long life on her terms. I am especially proud of her independent lifestyle, whether it being traveling on two buses for two hours to go to work at PS 244... which I jokingly refer to as MY Mother's third child, and her favorite child at that, or shopping on the Avenue, either Church Avenue, Utica Avenue, Avenue U, or Kings Highway.
As you are well aware, MY Mother surrounded herself with Beautiful things.
Her beautiful fragrances, you knew when My Mother was in the area just by the scent of her perfume of the day.
Her exquisite broaches and pins, which she changed daily to match her mood.
Her unique watches to match he outfits, and most of all her elegant Pearl Necklaces.
So...I am asking on thing of you .....
Each time you experience an unforgettable scent, admire a stunning broach, a unique watch, or a lovely string of pearls....
Please Think of MY Mother and SMILE!
I Love You Mom, and I will Miss you Greatly,
Your Daughter Virginia
