Dear Maureen, Maria and me are very saddened about Genes passing. Some of my fondest memories are times we spent together playing ball and just hanging out. We have known each other over 60years. Throughout this time I can tell you he was pretty quiet and very casual and truly good friend. Heaven has gained another angel that we are sure he will watching over you . Our thoughts and prayers are with you and family. If there is anything you need, feel free to reach out to us. Jimmy

Dear Maureen, Our hearts are broken for you and the loss of our friend Gene. So many beautiful fun memories with you both. Sharing Christmas Eve’s in Florida with our family. The parties we had in Cedarcrest, too many to mention. The beautiful dinner parties shared. The lifelong friendship and sisterhood bond we have. When you pleaded for us not to move to NC. We shall always remember Gene as the wonderful friend, neighbor and athlete who would give you the shirt off his back if you asked. We shall remember Gene in his strong days and know we are always there for you. It pains us we cannot be together in your time of grief. We love you forever Maureen. XOXO Kathy and Rick
