Hello,

Yesterday the world lost a great guy and actor, Paul Walker, in a deadly car crash. I'm sad, my condolences to any fans here,
Here is what Jason Statham wrote, Impossible to register how deeply sad it is to loose such a great man.

Never heard of register being used in such context. Is it a British variant?
What are other verbs you may use?

Thanks.

So would I, but I'm guessing that when our North American friends get up they'll say a deadly car crash is just fine by them.

At least one of us is up, and it is fine by me. The victim is dead either way. ;-)
