I barely remember Great Uncle Gene. I remember Randy and Ricky more. I was a little kid when he was around. He will be dearly missed. My Mom Barbara and Aunt Ann, Lena, Uncle Charles will miss him dearly Melissa E Smith, November 26, 2008 I knew of Gene through different relatives, I know T.J. and I went to church with Bud Alexander and also Sue Edwards. My uncle is Jolly Terry and I recall Gene at several of the singings. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Denice Burnside Webb, November 25, 2008 My Papaw was a wonderful man. He will be greatly missed. Papaw taught me so much! He took care of me after school and during the Summer. He took me fishing, fed me yummy green peas (my favorite veggie to this day), cantalope, and super yummy peanut butter and syrup with toast. I loved dancing around the living room with him, and I'm certain he was thankful when I learned how to do it without standing on his feet. I also loved that he shared his Certs with me. I love you, Papaw! Valerie Kacmarcik, November 24, 2008
