Gene was a woman of immense faith, commitment and determination. She was a practical idealist who inspired many with her example and voice. I will miss her but am privileged to have known her.

I don't know what she did in Government. I never went to her home, or to a tea party. What I do know is that she raised wonderful, thoughtful, and most importantly ,kind children, who if not exactly as she always was, were most certainly who she wanted to be.

I have no idea what she did in Government. I never went to her tea parties. Nor was I ever in her home. What I know with a full heart is that she raised wonderful, thoughtful, kind, and loving children, all who will honor all the best that she was and if not who she always was, who she wanted to be. Her legacy is in them.
