Gene, Im truly at a loss for words! We have so many memorable times together! Too many to count! You did save me back in the day from Paulette which was comical at its best! A few yrs back when u began to get sick God put it on my heart to send you a Bible of which I know u read! It sais in Gods word that His word will not return void and for that i am thankful cause we will truly see you again!! Love you Gene!

You are going home. All of your family is waiting for you. Your work here is done. Rest In Peace. 

Well I am going to miss being called A BUTTHOLE, every time our paths met, but I love it coming from you. You can smoke as many cigarettes as you want and drink your favorite drink, and no one will say a word to you. Your body is strong again and no more pain every again. You leave behind beautiful kids and grandkids and you will be remembered by many and many will tell some great stories about your life Gene. Your family and friends will come together tomorrow and we will probably start those stories, some will include laughs and some will include tears, but you were loved by many.
