    Sheryll, I was saddened to learn about Rege's death. Rege and I worked in the same department at Edgar Thomson-Irvin Works under the guidance of your father for most of the '60s. While I didn't work closely with Rege, we crossed paths frequently and had a number of sidebar conversations, because our offices and duties somewhat overlapped. I was always impressed with his attentiveness to tasks at hand, and distressed about his accounts of nagging back problems. I liked him. I'm sure that I met you during those years. At the time I was performing duties in the Personnel, Training and Labor Relations divisions of the department, before I was transferred to the Pittsburgh Headquarter's Office. I know that you are Mary Lynn's sister. because she, I, and my sister Barbara were were fond classmates of your sister at Baldwin High School, and we've had the pleasure of seeing each other at high school reunions. Because of the obituary mention of Huntington's Disease, I presume that Rege was burdened by it, and if so, I regret that it was a burden for both of you. In closing, I would be remiss in not sharing with you that your dad was an extraordinary mentor to me earliest in my career, and I have always been convinced that he thus was most influential for my subsequent success through the ranks of middle-management in U.S. Steel Corporation for 42 years. My gratitude for his guidance could not be overstated. On a personal level, I came to love him for the extraordinary man he was. Your mom was an absolutely delightful person as well! My wife and I will be praying for you, and all others in the Aschenbrenner and Kirkpatrick families in this hard time. Hopefuly, I will be able to attend the service at Jefferson Memorial Park, but I have an oncology appointment that may interfere.
