Idella, Kim, Brian and the Family,

My family's hearts and prayers go out to you now, due to the loss of your family patriarch. There is no doubt that your hearts are heavy and troubled, at this time, but Gene had a long and fruitful life. He has been blessed! The world does not owe him anything. I am glad that he was a lifelong friend of my dad and that we got to know and love him, too!

Gene is alright because he is with the Father, now. He just needs for the family to be alright. Can't ya'll see him walking around heaven now, with that "hip walk" that he has not been able to sport for such a very long time? He is with the family and friends that he has lost over the years, too. Gene is no longer suffering! He is FREE! Praise God!

May God continue to bless all of you!

Love you all!

George, Elizabeth, Shana & Lauren Levins
