Uncle Gene played a huge part in my teen years, always there to listen, and show kindness. I am so saddened by the loss of his sweet spirit! He loved his children and wife so much. He and my Dad were so close, and I know he is in a happy reunion. My prayers are with Aunt Vicky, his children and grand
children, and all that feel the void at his time! I LOVE YOU UNCLE GENE...RIP
