Regina's niece Lorelei Simms--Brother Maurice Anderson's daughter

Regina's niece Lorelei Simms died recently. Her funeral is Friday, February 6, 2015 in Culver City, California. I had the opportunity to meet and interview her about Regina, her husband Bill, and Regina's parents several years ago. She said that Regina use to send her books to read--of course. It was such a pleasure to meet her and her three surviving children, Regina, Angelina, Anthony and the late Cynthia's son and grandchild and cousins, etc., etc. She will be missed.
