    Dear Regina and family, I was very surprised and saddened to hear of Chickie’s passing. I loved visiting with her when she went to visit my aunt at the Don. Just seeing her made me smile and her outspoken words made me laugh out loud. I can’t thank Chickie, Regina and Peggy for their kindness to my aunt. She loved you all and I can imagine the conversation they are having in Heaven right now. The place will never be the same.

    Love – Leslie
