To Regen's family,
I had the chance to work with Regen at OHL. He and I were on quite a few flights up to Columbus together, and he was such a great young man to be around. You should be so proud of the work ethic, maturity, and humanity he exhibited at OHL. My prayers for peace are with you.

My sincere condolences for your loss. I've worked with Regen for a couple of years at OHL and have always been impressed by his positive attitude and easy smile. The loss we feel for a colleague will not measure in comparison to the loss of a brother, or a son, or a father. My prayer for you is that you retain some measure of hope in the midst of such tragic loss.
