When a few people you remember watching on TV begin dying, the reality of your own mortality begins sinking in.😳
"Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows." 🍃

I was so shocked and saddened to hear about his passing. 😞 I always liked Regis. He was always such a sweetheart and a kind soul. He always reminded me of a teddy bear. He will be missed so much. ♥️
I remember watching the show when I was in my teens, he used to talk about staying up to watch Seinfeld each night then going to bed after. I've thought about that a lot lately since it is now my habit. We love you Regis Rest in Peace.

Thank you for being a part of my childhood in the mid eighties on my sick stay home from school days. Watching Regis and Kathy Lee with my Grandmother. He was very nice met him near 7 Lincoln Square in NYC getting in his limousine 2009. Rest in peace Regis 🙏🕊
Regis was an amazing man in the spotlight.
I always took him for a TYPE 'A' personality. His success, love of people, and love of life seems to have tamed it so as to reap the benefits without the high blood pressure and stress ill effects.
His obvious love of people kept him publicly relevant IMO.
an ICON to be admired, and emulated.
Kelly Gervais
Kelly Gervais:
He was one of the few really good hosts, so giving and kind and funny, he made his guests feel relaxed and knew when to be quiet and listen, he knew everything about his guests... his life was the people around him, always friendly and I never heard any fan stories where he was nasty.. he was never more ebullient as when he was doing his job...
