Pansy, Zach, & Luke. Words are not easy at this . time. Gene was a good friend and I will miss his phone calls to check up on me. I know your hearts are hurting and no words can take away the hurt of losing Gene. You and the boys hang on to your faith in Jesus and he will carry you though this tough time. You are in mine and Pam's thoughts and prayers.
