I was always happy to visit Gene while working at Apria Health Care
Gene would ask me how everything was going then ask how is the girl friend situation Well it seems like I was always between relationships and he would just laugh and say there’s plenty out there!!
Gene was a no nonsense guy and just wanted to be treated fairly. I knew he was in a lot of pain and felt really bad that he couldn’t get around but Gene never let on how bad he felt. A fighter to the end
I know Gene will be missed and I have missed the conversation’s we had
