Wanda, Denise and Karla,

I wish there were some sure words that I could find to lightened the heavy heart that you all carry at this time. They say that time does heal bad and sad events in our lives and hopefully you will find some solice in the fact that I and many others that knew Gene are also feeling a sadness and a sense of bewilderness that he is gone.

I first met Gene on a cold January night in 1969. I was living here then with a two year old boy, wife and a suddently faulty furnace and it was 3 o'clock in the morning. I had called the fuel oil company and from the very start I immediately like this man who promply showed up. He was so cheerful ,caring and quickly fix the problem. From that first encounter, I got to know him better throughout the years and didn't realize until he was gone just how much I enjoyed being around him and how missed instantly he became. After he began the quest to find the grave of his Civil War relative, Nimrod, I teasingly always called him Nimrod from that day on. We had some great and memorable times together and he simply cannot be replaced with any other friend.

I have learned from his death a little lesson. I have a few friends that I can also say that they really are friends. Often I tell my family and my wife that I love them but I now realize I need to say that to my friends also. I regret that I never said that to Nimrod.

Sincerely, Richard Steerman

Wanda, Carla, Denise & Aunt Edith:
I was surprised, shocked and saddened to hear about Gene's death. Sorry I was unable to attand the funeral service, but it was my regularly scheduled work day. I so much enjoyed sharing hunting tales with Gene and learned quite a bit that I did not already know from his stories about my father and my grandfather. I will greatly miss those times of sharing with him. I am certain his presence will be missed by all. You are in my prayers. Stan Myers
