    I have never met a kinder or a more generous person until I met Gene. I am grateful that I had not only knew him but I was lucky to have Gene for a brother in law.

    I met Gene delivering his Friday meal from the Council on Aging. He always offered me a soft drink and complimented me on an article of clothing and always thanked me for volunteering. He will be missed.

    We were sorry to learn of Gene"s death. We delivered Mealson Wheels twice a month. It was a pleasure to have him greet you at the door. There was always a kind word from Gene. I know we delivered meals when your mother was alive so it has been a few years. Blessings and Peace Brenda & Doug Decker
