    Hello Ginny: I just found out about Gene today, and it’s strange, I have been thinking about both of you lately and wondering how you were. So many times our great memories come to my mind of us all out singing on the bus and having a great time. I think of you every time I look at my Precious Moments figurine. I wish I’d known earlier so I could come and be with you. I know Gene is singing with the angels now and I can’t wait to see him again!
