Deepest condolences and prayers to my cousins and our entire extended family. I will miss Uncle Eugene. I will remember him visiting me in Boston on his way to take a cruise! We enjoyed a nice dinner and conversation. I am so glad that I got to see him at Taylor and Matt's wedding. Love and prayers,
Angela
