I will always remember Oran as being helpful and kind. He seemed a bit shy, but I loved that he agreed one year to be part of our Southwest Airlines Executive Office Halloween musical "MDW, The Musical," a spoof of the show Chicago. It makes me smile to picture him as a member of the singing, dancing jury, decked out in 1920's attire. Rest in peace, Oran!
