  1. Gene, Gene the dancing machine. A finer gentleman you will never find. I looked forward to our talks when I would visit my parents when you both still lived on Wilson Ave. Pauline was lucky to have landed you but not as lucky as you were to have landed her. What a sweetheart.

  2. Pauline, I didn’t have the opportunity to meet your husband, but you spoke of him with such fondness and compassion. You and your family are in my prayers for peace and comfort. Love to you.
