    My heart is heavy this morning because I've lost a dear friend, Gene. I would never think of Gene without thinking of John, what a beautiful love story. Gene ALWAYS made me feel like a million bucks with her kindness and loving spirit. I will miss her very much and I will always remember her smile. God has another jewel in heaven, she is celebrating her arrival home. Darlene

    Mr. Rieger - I am so sorry for your loss. I always so enjoyed seeing you and Mrs. Rieger together at church. You always made such a great looking couple and I know you were such an inspiration to so many at First Baptist. Rejoice in knowing her suffering is over and that she is with her Lord and that one day you will be together again forever, never to be separated again. May God bless, comfort and strengthen you and your family in the days and weeks ahead. My Deepest Sympathy, Alton Connor
