Not sure what to say?

I served with Eugene in Afghanistan I was in 6th marines. I still remember the radio traffic announcing the "river city". I never had the honor of knowing eugene as much as his brothers in 1/8 did but even in the short time I knew him I came to know him as a great friend. Every year I pray I get a oppertunity to visit where he is laid to rest. I never thought when I last saw him it would be the last time I ever would. He was the first and only person I knew who was lost to that hell...

RIP. Never forgotten.

I wake up to a new message of condolence for you. Almost 5 years later and people are still writing about you. My God how I miss you...

I love you son.....Pops

I was an honor to visit your site and learn a little about USMC Eugene's life and about those who love him. Prayers to all his friends and family.

Theresa and Gene,
I was saddened to hear of the loss of your son. I was hoping to find my old friend, Theresa on line, when I came across the news of your son.
My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family.
My thoughts and prayers will be with you always.
I am sorry we lost touch through the years and didn't get to meet Gene. Your son seemed to be a very special person!

As this day starts I will honor you the best I can. Please know this just isn't right, you should be here....your kids should be running through my house and destroying it as you and Jake did when you were younger. I love you and I miss you more than anyone can ever imagine. Why would this happen....proud to be your father. This world will never be right without you....never ever. I love you son....SBWH. .....Pops

I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. It is by chance that I came across the news of your son. I cannot imagine the heart break you feel. I read through some of your posts and cried as I read them. He sounds like a beautiful soul. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy to the parents and his siblings. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Always Faithful!

Not sure why I came to this page. I just did. We buried you at Arlington on the 11th and are only a couple of days shy of 3 years. I still find it hard to believe your gone from our sight but I know you are never far from our hearts. I love you and I miss you more than I could have ever imagined. Love you, Pops.

Thinking about you this morning. Memories when Jack, Reggie and you use to play on the street in front of the house, climb the trees, do dumb kids stuff..... Miss you Gene, Reggie and Jack's grandma.
