So sorry to hear of Gene's passing. Can remember when he and Nora Lee got married, and him pushing her around the square in a wheelbarrow as part of the celebration. Earlier, had Nora Lee as a neighbor and my second grade teacher. Again, very sorry that they are now both gone.

Gene was such a soft spoken, kind hearted man. I knew his health was declining and am sure he was ready to see all of those who have passed before him. Lisa, Linda and families, I am so sorry and pray for you all as you begin your new life without him. ♥️
