Not sure what to say?

Moose and family
So sorry to hear of Coke's passing. With both of my parents gone, I don't get news about Bay City friends anymore. Always remembered Coke was my dad, Milt Spaulding's, best fishing buddy. Condolences to your entire family.
Kathy Compton (also Betty and Randy)

Tina, So sorry to hear about Coke. He was so nice. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Sorry I couldnt be there. Jackie and Family[Gallagher}

Coke was my Godfather! He was always so loving and thoughtful. I remember one time I was about 5, he came and visited in the evening and brought me a box of little dolls dressed in ethnic outfits. I woke up to find them in my bed. My Dad didn't want him to wake me up, but I remember being disappointed that I didn't get to see him. LOVED those dolls!!! I'll miss you Coke!

Eugene, I'll miss seeing you with walking stick in hand, taking care of business for the annual veteran feast at SECR Ballroom. You were indeed like the tortoise ahead of the Hare. In life and community you never finished last! I miss you already my friend. Love and respect from all your Anishinabe Ogitchedaw Brothers and Sisters. David Perez, Sr & family

Eugene was the nicest person I've had the pleasure of working with and knowing. Rest well my friend

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