To My Beautiful Aunt Gene. You are at peace now with your loving husband, your son, Mammy, and your sister (my mother). I will miss our long phone conversations and the way you made me laugh all the time - especially with your jokes for Richie. You were the God mother that was there for me to fill a sad void when I lost my mother. May you rest in peace. I know this is a very difficult time for you, Tom and Chris - but know I will be here for you always. Our hearts are aching alongside you. Our prayers are with you all. Love Laurie and Richie too.

Sending our love and deepest sympathies to you Chris and Tom. I have WONDERFUL memories of your mom, my Great Aunt Gene. She brought light and laughter to all of us who knew her. May you find peace in knowing she is soaring high with the one's we lost and watching over us all. Keep her loving smile close to you and remember that a mom's hug lasts long after she lets go. We are here for you whenever you need us cousins. Love Gina, Lee, Melina and Natalia Manolis

Although Aunt Gene is no longer in our physical presence, her memory will live forever. She was such a soft spoken, sweet woman, always with a smile on her face, with her dark hair and light lipstick and the one who introduced me to ABC Pizza...for BREAKFAST! :) I will always cherish my childhood memories of fishing off the dock in the canal right in her back yard. I will hold dear the homemade wedding gift that is on my wall that she hand stitched, "And they lived happily ever after." Rest in peace and know we'll never forget the wonderful woman she was and the amazing friend she was to my mom. My thoughts and prayers to Tom and Chris and all our family.
