Ardean and family; I am so sorry to hear about gene. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I always thought of Gene as my second dad. Gene was always good, kind and helpful to me. I wish I could be there to give you a big hug and talk about all the good memories I have with you all. Gene will be missed, but will always hold a large memory spot for me. Besides, I bet Gene and my dad are arguing politics or cars as I write this note.
LOVE! Rod.
