Brace yourself, Lord! The last of the "Martini Gang" has come home to join his brothers and sister. We know they are celebrating their reunion like only the Smothers siblings can! Cheers to all the laughs and memories we had with you down here, and to the ones you'll share up there! Enjoy your homecoming Uncle Gene. We love you and miss you already! Love, Dickie's crew

So sorry to hear of your loss. I remember your Dad and Mom so well from my days of youth playing with Theresa in the old Beach Haven neighborhood. My thoughts and prayers are with you along with the hope that your wonderful memories bring you comfort.
