My mother, Virginia, and I offer our condolences and prayers to Gene's family, friends, and especially Patti, in this sad time. I am so thankful that my mother was able to visit Arizona and spend a day with both Gene and Patty just last month, and we both treasure the picture of the 3 of them together. Our thoughts are with all who loved Gene.
