Mr. Card was my neighbor in Seabrook, Maryland for more then 30 plus years. I grew up with Diane, Karen and Suzie. We had the best memories growing up in our little neighborhood!!! God bless you sir, it was a pleasure knowing you. Thanks for the memories.

Pop Pop, there are far too many memories to put into a 2,000 character passage. I just pray you knew that you were more than a grandfather to me. You were my ride or die, my role model, my best friend, and most importantly, my father figure. You were always there when I needed to vent. You were always there when I needed advice. Ypu were always there when I needed a laugh, and you were always there when I needed a shoulder to cry on. And now that I can no longer call on you for your wisdom, it pains me to come to the realization that you, physically, are no longer there. However, your soul, and spirit, will live on through eternity. I promise you, I will not let you down. I love you forever, may you rest in peace.

Love, Shane

Gene was a GREAT MAN that I had the privilege to be his and Mrs. Card Handyman since 2008 , he would always give me a hug when I came over to work, or visit, and a hug when I was leaving .
He always told me how much he trusted me to do the job they needed done , always had kind words of appreciation from both of them .
I became not just a worker to the Cards , but more of a son that they never had, he would tell me that off and on . This really touched my Heart on those words from him, since I lost my dad when I was very young , he became a father figure to me .
There is comfort when you know where someone is going when they have a strong faith in JESUS , he will be missed very much, but never forgotten in my heart , and one day I will see him again , as I would always say to him when I was leaving , and I will say again now , I LOVE YOU GENE, and he would say back to me LOVE YOU SON !!!!
Thanks Mr. Card and Mrs. Card

Uncle Gene I loved the times we got to spend together and the laughs we had while visiting. You always welcomed us to your home and never let the mood low with your wit. I will miss you very much. Jesus will take good care of you now so you can rest in peace knowing you deserved it. Love you very much.
