    I’ve had the honor of working with Reginald for three years and I must say it has been a pleasure. His positive spirit, professionalism and love for his patients is what drew me to Reggie. He’s my brother from another mother.and my friend. A guy that I can truly say I’ve enjoyed having as a team member. Its team members like Reggie that make the type of work that we do easier.

    I really appreciate this blog. . My dad was my world. He was the smartest, funniest man I know. In a house full of women he was who we looked up to. 4 daughters 1 son. I wish my son had a chance to meet him but I know they met in passing. I know everything happens for a reason and maybe his purpose is now to watch over us. Thank you so much for this documentation of such a great wonderful man.

      Lisa,

      Firstly, I am sorry for your loss. I lost my mother at a young age. She had the magnetic spirit that your father seemed to have. I know there is comfort when others appreciate someone you love soo much. When I heard the story and saw the pictures I was immediately drawn to your dad. The story, your dad and your family inspired me.

      Secondly, congratulations on the birth of your baby boy! I am sure he’s met your dad and your dad will look over you and your family.

      Lastly, I can only the imagine the pain you must feel. I hope you find comfort that your daddy was able to celebrate with you and you have amazing photos of him smiling and enjoying himself. From one girl to another — there is always a void there when you lose a parent; however, it does get easier. The memories and his legacy will one day outweigh the pain you feel.

      Much love.

    This story about Roy Harper is beautiful and true. His courage and strength was breathtaking. The love and support that his family had for him was so refreshing. It’s what is missing in so many families today. I am sure that his legacy will forever live through the generations of Harpers to come.

    My heart was deeply touched by this beautifully written account of Roy’s last weeks and how positive he was. I was equally touched by the young man named in the story (Reginald) because I know first hand that he is very loving, compassionate, kind, professional, and a lover of people. He’s an excellent nurse, friend, and son! God blessed me to give birth to this wonderful young man to be a blessing to others…and that he is!!
    My prayers remain for Roy’s family.

      I am so touched that you liked the bond. I was touched by his spirit … just hearing the story and seeing his pictures. His spirit leaped out and inspired me to write the story. God bless you and your family. What an amazing man! He had the ability to touch me from the heavens.

    I would also like to thank Regi. He has gone beyond his call of duty. I have never met anyone so giving and compassionate to complete strangers. He also made a great impression on my dad. I could tell by the way my dad joked with Regi as he does with family. I would like to thank him for everything he has done for my family and for the beautiful memories and pictures he captured at my baby shower.

    To Mrs. Christine, Lisa and the entire family, it was such an honor to be his Nurse on that last weekend!!!! Thank you all so much for allowing us to take care of him and attend the baby shower with you all. Your family truly touched me that weekend and treated me like family. Mr. Harper was a blessing to us at Sacred Journey and to all who knew him…
    Love Margo RN

    I stumbled upon this blog by accident, when I saw the beautiful face of Lisa and her dad. I worked with Lisa years ago and was so sorry to hear about her dad but thrilled to view the pictures where he was able to attend the baby shower. This post was beautifully written. God bless this post and Lisa and her family.
