I am so blessed to have gotten to know Gene, even if it was for a short time. He was always so kind to me and my girls, and they LOVED his sense of humor. God bless the Heptig family.

Gene was a wonderful caring brother. When I was a little girl, 6 or 7 yrs. old Gene worked at the Dickenson Theatre in Topeka as a ticket taker. Every Saturday he took me to work with him at 12 noon and sat me in the theatre to watch the double feature movie, newsreel and cartoon. I loved the movies and watched the same one over and over till 9pm when the last movie started and he got off work. He then took my hand and we walked to the bus stop and went home. That was the highlight of my week and I so adored him. That's my special memory and I shall treasure it always. I will always remember him as being patient and caring. The world is emptier without him. Rest in God's arms sweet brother.
