Gary and Vicki
I was so sad to hear that your Dad had passed away. Your Dad and Mom were so dear to Arnold and I. I know how much they loved you all. We had wonderful fellowship with them. Just think that they are with our wonderful Savior now.
I know that Arnold was glad to see them there. I pray for your family and hope you find peace in knowing Jesus. I love you!


I worked with Gene for many years prior to his retirement from G.E. He was a great guy. Our thoughts and prayers to the family in their time of loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad was a good man. I don't know if you remember me but I worked with your mom upstairs at Eye Care & Surgery. I still think about your mom all the time esp at Christmas time. May the Lord be with you in this time to bring you comfort and peace.

Vicki and Meleah,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad and "Paw Paw". This is such a difficult time and no words can adequately express my sorrow for such a profound loss. Please know that all of us here at work are lifting you and your family up in our prayers.

We were so sorry to hear of Gene's passing. He will be remembered as a kind, gentle and fun-loving guy who enjoyed Roanoke Express games as much as we did!
