Dear Barbara and family, my heart is so heavy for you all. Gene was such a wonderful man. I really loved his laugh. He was kind and soft spoken, and could still fill a room with his energy! He was loved and adored by so many people and he will be missed so much. My heart is with your family during this sad, sad time. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Dad, I am heartbroken that I can't be with you and the family, but I am with you in love and spirit. You were a great husband, father and especially wonderful Pop Pop to your grandkids. Your stories, laugh and magic tricks will be missed by us all. We will see you again to laugh and be together forever. Love you.
