I knew Gene through the Lynn family. I met him at several Lynn shindigs and represented him in a couple minor cases. He was a very good man: courteous and funny as hell!! I spoke to him often about his time with the police. Condolences to his family. I´m sure he´ll be missed.

Rest in the peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Gene. You probably didn´t know that I was ordained as a Catholic priest almost 6 years ago and so I had the honor of offering Mass for the repose of your soul the other day. I´ll keep you and your family in my prayers. Love you. First cousin, Padre Larry. Or Frosty to you.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. Please find comfort in the words found at 2nd Thessalonians 2: 16,17.
