Within those 32 years, Regina and Jim had two sons together, Anthony and Jeremy. Along with Regina’s other two sons, Steven and Richard, whom Jim treated just like his own, the family was very blessed and happy. Jim and Regina always wanted to be around one another, so Jim even stopped taking out of town jobs to be closer to his wife and family.
