Our neighbor, our friend. Gene, you were always there. I hope you and Connie are dancing and laughing. This time around its forever.
When Johnny was driving truck over the road, you always reminded me you would come over if I was having any trouble. I never needed to call but I don’t doubt you would’ve been here quick.
You and Connie did a good job with your kids. Well keep in touch with Jeannie and if she needs anything, we’ll be there.
Well good buddy, guess this 10-4 over and out.
