Dear Peggy,
You lost a wonderful husband and I lost a friend.
Whenever I think of Gene I'll remember him and Frank racing to and from Ettlingen on the Autobahn. They were so daring and fearless and always ready to have an adventure.
Please know that I consider myself blessed to have been your friend over the many years. You have my deepest sympathy and you will be in my prayers always, Tina
