    It is a sad day at your passing and yet a time for rejoicing for you are no longer in pain. You leave a large pair of shoes to be filled for being the loving and kind person that you were. You will be sorely missed.

    So sorry to hear of Gene’s passing. I worked for an accounting firm and knew Gene that way. He would come in on the “night shift” as he worked some where else during the day. By the next morning, he would have checked all the returns for us and doing some of his own. He was a kind quiet man. His stories were very entertaining. The last couple of years I would see him at mass at St. Matthews Church. May your memories remain in your hearts forever. God bless you at this difficult time.
