I've always thought the world of Gene and Sadie and have many fond memories. I always enjoyed seeing both of you at the reunions. Sending prayers and hugs your way. Heaven has definitely received another angel.

Gene always had a smile on his face (or a sneaky grin), was always a gentleman, and so proud of his family!

God bless you Sadie. There are no finer people than you and Gene. I remember when I was probably about 12 or so and Gene had this beautiful palimo horse and uncle Ben had a pony he let me ride. Gene and I would ride all day Rest a while and then ride more after dark. Some of the best days of my life thanks to Gene.
I am sorry we can't be there but our prayers are with you.
