Jean and Family,
My deepest sympathy in the loss of Gene.
Jean if I recall, at our last class reunion you were talking about your 50th wedding anniversary. From reading the warm thoughts of others you must have had a wonderful man in your life.
May God comfort you and your family during this difficult time.

Gene was always upbeat, he couldn't have had anyone that didn't like him, and if there was he said it was their problem.Bob and Donna
