Not sure what to say?

Gene was a great man. He served as treasurer of First Baptist Church Of Montverde, Florida. with compassion and dignity. Heaven has just now become a little dearer and a little closer. I pray that God's grace will be with you, Eve, and comfort you in the coming days.

Sorry to hear about Gene. I first met Gene when I came to Washington DC in 1978.

I had the pleasure of meeting Gene several times. I remember him as kind and welcoming, with a ready sense of humor, and great personal warmth. Eva and Karen, may Gene's many blessings comfort you.

Dear Karen and Eve,
Gene was a wonderful man,husband father and devoted son. He was also a wonderful cousin to me! He was also a big teaser! i'll always remember growing up around him. Eve you have been a loving and life long partner to him. Karen you also have been such a devoted daughter to him and still are a loving and devoted daughter to Eve. I'm sure Auntie, Uncle Jerry,Uncle Lynn and Mom and Dad are all having a front row seat to watch and see all who loved him tonight and...

Words may not be able to comfort you at this time, but please know that Gene will always be with you. He was a wonderful, warm and compassionate man who will be missed. My love and thoughts are with you.

Gene was always the nicest man. We loved his personality and sense of humor. We will miss him. Love to Eve & Karen and may all your memories bring you much comfort. He was a blessing and an angel on earth.
