My thoughts and prayers are with you during your time of sorrow. May the memories you have of Gene give you comfort and strength in the days ahead. It's been many many years since I saw any of the Cline family. We went to church at St. Mark a long time together. I remember the big smile Gene always had and the love he had for his family.

Dear Cline family,

I have such fond memories of you all from childhood, from our days at church together and Gene at the fire department. I'm sorry I can't be there in person today to celebrate with you Gene's homecoming. I know he is rejoicing in Heaven with our Heavenly Father, walking on streets of pure gold, seeing the glorious face of our Savior. But I know that you will miss him terribly, and so I grieve with you and hold you close in my thoughts and prayers. May you feel the presence of God closer than ever before and may he comfort you during this difficult time.

With love,

Patti Haithcox Wooten
