I'll always remember how kind & generous Gene was to everyone, he always had a positive attitude, he seen his glass as half full not half empty. His passing break's my heart, he was taken way to soon. My prayers are with each and every one of his family now as we all share this lost of one of the best men to have known in our lifetime. May God bless each of you, and see you through this trying time. RIP Gene ..
