Gene was a great man and a great neighbor. So sorry to hear of his passing.

Gene and I met at the residence at Melrose Station. I worked as a receptionist.
Gene was a wonderful man. He came over every time I was working, singing Irish songs for me. He really loved his family and he was so proud of his children.
Rest in peace my friend.
I will keep the wonderful memories.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. He was such a nice man. I'm sure he's doing a jig in heaven with your beautiful Mom. You'll all be in my heart and prayers in these difficult days ahead.
