To my Dearest Gene,
This is a tough time for all of us knowing that you are no longer here with us. Sending lots of prayer and love to you and your family. You’ve always gone out of your way for others, you’ve always been so kind, and you were always smiling every time I saw you. I wish I could give you one last hug right now. But I know you’re guiding all of your loved ones from above. Rest in perfect peace, Gene.

He was always so much fun to work with. He always looked on the bright side and always had a smile on his face. He brightened all of our days and always said good morning. May he rest in peace.
