    I was so sorry to hear of Uncle Gene passing. My heart is broken. He was such a special, sweet, and gentle man. He had such a kind and loving spirit. I always enjoyed his visits to Olympia. He would come with a big smile and his suitcase full of baking mixes. I will always hold a special place in my heart for him. Please accept my condolances and my love for the whole family.

    Long before there was Joe Cool there was you Uncle Gene. You showed me so much in such a short time. Thank you so much. I always smile whenever I think about you. Always have, always will. I imagine just about anyone you touched does that as well. My thoughts and love to all of you. Phil
