We were sorry to hear about Gene. We have such good memories of him and Dot sitting on the pew behind us at MCPC and each Sunday morning before worship began, we would always talk (until we decided it was time to let the preacher begin--LOL). I worked at Faulk Brothers and Gene would go up there quite often and just like at church, we always seemed to have a lot to talk about. I know he will be greatly missed, but how wonderful that he is once again reunited with Dot and Sara.
Prayers and Hugs to the Family!!
