Judy, Mikki, & Kari,
We want to send you our deepest sympathies and our love. We are so sorry to hear of Gene's passing. Although Gene and I didn't work in the same department, I've had the pleasure to work with him on many projects. I'll always remember his smiling face at work and Church. We will keep you and Gene in our prayers.

Gene was a terrific bowler and would always encourage me to keep up the progress I was and continue to make with my bowling game. I will miss him dearly. Friday nights will not be the same without his smiling face and uplifting remarks. Rest in peace, Gene.
