Gene was a dear friend to Jerry and me. We had many times traveling with him and Reggie. Our conversations, laughs, and some tears only brought us closer. His friendship, love, and caring will be treasured and remembered forever. Gene will be greatly missed, but we are comforted in knowing he is now in heaven and his body is fully restored there.
(The picture was on a cruise ship in 2012...more laughs that trip!)

Dear Reggie;

So sorry to hear of Gene's passing. Marcia and I will be in
Chicago until Sunday; so we'll not be able to be at the services.
We will be there in spirit and will keep sending positive thoughts
your way. You had 38 years together and in today's world that
is quite an accomplishment. When you've had some time to
recover from this; let's get together and reminisce. We'll be
thinking of you on Saturday during the services.

Love;
Mark and Marcia
