Melba, Karen, and McGinnis Family I'm sorry that I wont be able to attend the visitation or services for Gene. I will never forget Gene's warm smile and handshake. Or the time that I spent on Larry's roof that Spring/Summer shingling with Gene. I love you, and pray for God's blessing to be with you. Mark
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
