"Grandpa" would tell me every time I saw him he had two favorite kinds of cookies...hot ones and cold ones. I will miss his sense of humor and kind soul. Thank you for sharing him with us. <3

Uncle Gene was such an outstanding person. He was always calm, cool, and collected. I remember visiting with him and Cecilia many times over the years. They both were hospitable and kind with their words. Gene always had good stories to tell, and cared about all people. His tutor work with people wanting to learn English is a perfect example of his love of humanity and compassion.
