Gene and Jean were such fun neighbors . It was always a joy seeing them . Genes laugh and kind spirit were a blessing to this world. I was honored to have made a cross for their big anniversary. Gene had collected stones throughout his life and wanted to use them to make a special cross for Jean . Genes faith and love of God , family and country was very evident and admirable . I pray he and Jean are enjoying the joys of heaven and that his family Is given the Grace of peace of heart .

I have so many memories with my Papa it’s hard to choose a favorite but one of my most cherished was looking into the crowd during my 8th grade choir concert and seeing him beam his contagious smile at me from the front rows. I had a solo and his smile calmed my nerves. It is a memory I cherish dearly.
