Gracie & Family; I really don't know what to say, saying sorry just doesn't seam to be the word. I am sorry for the hurting that you are feeling and nothing but time is going to heal that, if ever. Gene was a fun man I remember, when we were young and went to the shore, him my dad and I always went fishing when we got together, and Always got sick on that boat. Good memories that I will never forget. Family, and good memories. time will pass and the hurting will ease, and good memories will remain.
