Eulogy for Regina Ann Talbot
Hello friends and family. I am Mary Pat Grapple. We are here today to reflect on the life of Regina Ann Talbot.
Reggie was my dear friend and her sudden passing leaves a hole in my heart.
I met Reggie in college and to be honest I didn’t like her much when we first met. I guess I felt intimidated. She was tall, thin and beautiful in an intriguing way. You knew when she entered a room even before she spoke.
We were in many of the same classes and started studying together. Our friendship grew and we became inseparable. This had an added benefit – she was a “guy magnet.”
After college we had busy lives. Reggie’s caring and compassionate concern for the less fortunate manifested itself in work at the Soup Kitchen and she was a political activist for disabled veterans. She will be missed by those she came to know.
So today, folks, as we reflect on Reggie’s life she would expect us to treat:
- Hurt with Compassion
- Conflict with Resolve
- Division with Unity
- Contempt with Respect
- Hate with Love
Rest in peace my dear friend. I will miss you.
