Melba,I'm very sorry to learn of Gene's death. My prayers go out to you and your family and also to Gene's family. I am Ada Tucker's sister Kim, from Sullivan Indiana and met Gene when he and his friend were building a ramp for Bruce to be able to get to appointments and in and out of the house when he broke his leg. Gene was the nicest person anyone could meet.I feel privileged to have known Gene.
