So very sorry for your loss. I go to Portersville Steamshow every year and Rob told me about what happened. I believe I met Mr, Orock many times while I was there. I will offer Prayers when I go to my Church in the Special Prayer Book.

My deepest sympathy to the family. Rege was a very special person. I'll always remember sitting at Brown's having breakfast with Rege and my Dad (Nate) and listening to all their stories. You were one of a kind and will be missed terribly!
