My darling Gene. I love you still and always will. Your hard working days are over, may you rest in holy comfort in the arms of our Savior Jesus Christ I miss you so much already. All the children have shown me much love and support in this difficult time. Honey, they did you proud. Also, I have had much help from your sister Marlene, Rosemary, Ann, Wayne, Kelly and the boys, Mary, and countless friends and neighbors. My dear, give a kiss to our Lord and thank Him for me for our 42 years together.
Ask Him to bless all that have stood by me. I'm sure you heard Mike’s eulogy, it was such a comfort and blessing for me. I am looking forward to the day that I can hold you in my arms again, until then watch over me and know that I love you always………….Your loving wife, Renee xoxox
