My condolences to Gene's family on this sad occasion. Gene was my cousin and although we haven't seen each other since I moved away from New Castle in the 1970's, I used to see Gene and Jack regularly growing up. I am sorry for your loss and I hope his memory will be a comfort to you.

I knew Gene from the time he was a very young boy....he was very good friends with my brother, Ted Harrah. I went all through school with his brother, Jack. My mother and their mother were the best of friends. I am very sorry for your loss and pray that God will comfort you during this most difficult time.
