We are so sorry to hear that you, Gail and Gene have lost a son. There are no words to imagine losing a child. That has to be unbearably sad to say the least. The few times that we were around him was nothing but pure pleasure. He will be forever missed, our condolences doesn't seem to be enough said, all our love Jean and Bob B.
