To Emogene Adams and the Family of Regis Kelley:

We extend our sincere condolences-you are in our prayers.

Milton and I met Regis on a Caribbean Cruise I sponsored, and the friendship was immediate - he was such a "fun" guy!
We enjoyed vacationing with him and through the years, we remained in contact.

On several occasions when visiting family in Gary, IN; we stopped by and visited with Regis, he was always happy to see us.

We have lost a dear friend, may he rest in peace and may God comfort your hearts during this difficult time.
