Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

I just recently found out about your passing. You were such a great friend at Southern Railway. I still have the Christmas sleigh I bought at the Mayflower Hotel's Junior Women's event that you helped me carry back. I think of you every Christmas when I put it out. Wish I had stayed in closer contact with you and Martha.

Daddy Gene - Happy Birthday! I still can't believe you're gone. You're the sweetest Grandpa-in-law a girl could ask for, and I love you like my own grandpa. I think most about your gentle, but feisty spirit, and your wonderful family stories. You set an amazing example for us all. We love and miss you! Love - Susan


We all miss you so much. I miss the sound advice that you quietly gave and the funny stories we exchanged. Dad, I love you. Mike

Uncle Gene, highly respected and much loved by our family. You will be missed. My thoughts, love and prayers are with your family during this time and always.

A prince of a man. My Dad's brother and also his best friend. Sending thoughts and prayers to the family.

Sending thoughts and prayers to you all. We love you!!!

My "Uncle Gene". My "Buddy". I will miss you forever.

You will be missed. My prayers are with you and your family.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
