Uncle Gene, you are so loved...still and forever...The love that you and Aunt Joanie shared was dynamic :-) and it brings much joy to think of you together again. We so looked forward to your visits to New Jersey and to visiting you in New York. You always brought so many smiles and so much fun (even after you sold your purple car! ). Thank you for being so wonderful. Much love to you and to everyone up there at that magnificent party! Till we meet again XOXO Lynn and family

I had a lot of respect for him. He was a good family man and had an outrageous sense of humor! Enjoyed being around him when he traveled to Arizona. You won't be forgotten my friend!
