    Scott, Jenni and family. I know that it is never easy when a loved one passes from this life but just know that when the day came that God had set for Gene to leave, it was His perfect will. Gene was blessed to have you and Jenni take care of him for so long. God bless you all and may you find peace and comfort through His mercy and grace. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Gerri
