My deepest condolences at the loss of your father. I had the privilege of working closely with your dad for several years. He was the kindest man and helped me in so many ways (including sharing recipes from your Mom that I still have today!). Gene was always a gentleman and had the best sense of humor. He loved his family and talked about you all constantly. He will be missed.
