Gene was one of the best men I've ever known. He was my father-in-law, my friend and my mentor. He taught me so much and helped me to be a better person in life. I was lucky to have known him.

I am so thankful God sent Gene to be my husband, my love and my best friend. He was the best husband, Dad, Grandpa and a good friend to many.
Even though illness took away our "golden years", I hope Gene was able to realize how much I loved him and wanted to take care of him.
I will miss him, but he will always be a part of me and the love we shared will live on, as we promised each other on our wedding day, April 20, 1963.
Mae
