I met Regis a couple of times. Once in South Bend and once in Chicago. He couldn't have been nicer. What a personality...what a character...and what a career. He was one of a kind. He loved visiting his alma mater Notre Dame and the folks around South Bend loved having him visit. I was lucky to have a chance to meet him, but each time was only for 5 or 10 minutes...hardly time to get to know a person...he was the real deal, though, and just like he was on TV.
We're gonna miss ya, Regis!
