Gene -- I miss our conversations! You're one of a kind and are not forgotten. "All the Best" - Jess Fierro, San Diego, CA
Geno...We go back almost 60 years when we both joined The AP in San Francisco, worked the overnight "lobster shift" and roomed high atop Nob Hill with two other wire service newsmen.
With your many quirks you were not an easy friend; yet we never missed a chance to get together in various parts of the world for reunions. You were usually late for our meetings but my wife, who understood and loved Gene, counseled patience.
There are so many "Gene Kramer stories" to fill several books and it still wouldn't be enough to capture the essence of this odd fellow who gave every fibre of his mind and body to the news. The stories about Gene will long outlast his death.
I last visited Gene in retirement home a few weeks before his death--he seemed in a coma--and kissed his balding head and said goodbye to my longest-lasting friend.
RIP MR KRAMER. Professionals people like you that were there when the news happen are leaving us to fast . GOD BLESS YOU ,and your dear family SIR.
May the God of all comfort, bring comfort to the family and friends of Mr Kramer. We look forward to the time when sickness and death will be a thing of the past.
Gene, so many fond memories of you, your generosity of spirit, your sense of humor and your dedication to the AP and covering the news for readers. The world is a lesser place without you.
Thank you, Mr. Kramer for your dedicated service to report the news. The world was made safer thanks to efforts of real professionals like you. Jack Lee
Gene -- You are a sweet guy and we spent many hours hanging at the Washington press club bar and talking about the news. I am saddened and shocked. I realize I had not seen you for several weeks. I already miss you. Ben Barber
Rest in peace where He reigns in peace.
You are opening your hand and satisfying the desire of every living thing. Psalm 145:16.

To the the family of Gene Kramer - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that Gene will be missed by many.
