I was saddened to hear of Gene's death. I so enjoyed him as a professor and as a person. He was so supportive and affirming of my ministry. I took his film interpretation class, and have viewed films in a much different way since. I also just recently listened to the recording of my installation service at which he spoke in 1988. He was such a kind man, and a man of integrity. I will always remember him fondly. My prayers are with you all.
