I grew up with Gene. We lived in the same neighborhood, our mothers were good friends, and though Gene was a year ahead of me we went to school together. As a kid I was always a little in awe of him. He was handsome (oh, those eyes!) and so very kind. I haven't seen him in years, but my memories are all warm ones. I know he will be greatly missed. Our prayers are with his family.
