Condolences Michael, Catherine and Margaret, so sorry to hear of Gene's death. We loved getting together with Gene and AnnaMae whenever we visited Una in Chicago. Can't believe they are now both gone. Your Dad had a great zest for life and loved hearing our old stories from back in Ireland and of course he had plenty of his own stories. And what a great singing voice. We will never forget him.
With much love from cousin Seamus and Priscilla in Texas.

My parents and Gene and Ann were great friends going back as far as I can remember. Gene was supposedly a real character too. At his retirement party, he arranged a "ride home" for my Mom and Dad from the firehouse on Columbus Dr to their condo around the corner on Randolph. Gene and Ann also extended a helping hand to our family during a brief time of need long ago. Peace and prayers for the family!
