Becky,
I don’t know exactly what to say, Amy would have! She knew him better than I did, and she was much better at expressing herself, but I want you to know that I am thinking of you and am very sorry to hear this news. I will always remember his kindness, his quick wit and the twinkle in his eyes. I do know that healing takes a while, but I hope eventually you will be at peace with his not being here.

RIP my dear friend! You were one of a kind!! Always willing to help a hand to those how needed it - me being one, by just needing someone to help me pick up a lawn mower. I will never forget you famous words; "I love it!" You will may be gone - but you will never be forgotten. It's not goodbye....it's until we meet again. God Bless!!

Gene’s parents and mine were the best of friends. We all loved the Schwartz family. Gene’s dad even built our house in WDM. Even though we lost contact after high school, I’m saddened to hear of his passing. RIP Gene. Prayers and love to his family.
