Judy, so sorry to hear about Gene. I remember him from Indian Run, and of course a lot of time at the Bellaire pool. Not bashful meeting people, and always ready for a good laugh. Aunt Helen, your Mom, would always say “that Gene, he’s always up to somethin”. We especially are thankful to him and you for the help and comfort to Uncle Jule. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
