To the Albanese family. I am so sorry for your loss. I have great memories when Gene would come to have his taxes done by my father. They would talk for hours. He would always make sure he said hi to me asking how everything was going. It was always a joy to see him. I'm sure my father and Gene are continuing those long talks. God gained another angel.
