Arlene and family: I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

Arlene, We are so sorry to hear about Gene’s passing. He was a Great Man & will be Deeply Missed !! Prayers for you Brian & Kelly & all their families 🙏

Arlene, I’m so sorry to hear about Gene. Thinking about him brings back some great memories of years gone by. Guess we fell out of touch. He’ll be partying with Bob up in heaven having a heck of a good time! Bob passed on my birthday, June 29, 2018. He’ll be so happy to see him there. My love to you and your family in this very trying time. Take care. Myrna Wetch
