There are, thus far, two memorial services in the works for Regis Shephard.
Here's the info, Facebooked by his cousin, Latoya Jenkins.
A memorial service will be held for Regis at St. Philips College, Watson Fine Arts Building Theatre, 1801 MLK, San Antonio on Monday, Aug. 2 at 10 am.
Also funeral services will be held on Tuesday, August 3 at 10 am at First Baptist Church, 202 SW Avenue B., Seminole, TX. Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers.
Also, at the St. Philips memorial, there will be information about a scholarship fund being set up in Regis's name, and how to donate. I will keep y'all updated on that.
I spoke to Regis's oldest brother Roderick a little bit ago, and he says the family is in shock and grief, but that he's been "just overwhelmed by the response...we had no idea he was so well-loved and important to so many people in San Antonio."
Blue Star Contemporary Art Center has offered to host a memorial gathering, also. If you have any interest in participating or helping to orchestrate this, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
