I want to send my sympathy to the family of Gene. He was one of the nicest guys. I always enjoyed our talks at the bank SNB at 3rd and Walnut. I was a teller there and most of the time I did the deposits for Gene. I will always remember his smile that he always had. He was a great guy.
A friend always,
