    So sorry for your loss. Eugene was one of the first people we met when we moved to Prague. Always so friendly and outgoing. Had such a lovely smile and twinkle in his eye. Heaven has gained another angel. I’m sure Jeanne welcomed him home with open arms.

    The first time I met Gene was when I was assigned to help care for his sister Maxine. They both welcomed me into their home to provide assistance. They became my favorite client. Gene had a caring and giving heart. Even after his sister passed I was always asking people I knew in Prague how he was doing. I look every time I went by Quick Stop for his truck. I would stop in just to see him. He kept telling me he wanted me to come back and care for him. The last time I saw him was at the Corner Salon when he came in for a hair cut. I am deeply sorry I didn’t get one more chance to have a visit. There will always be a special place in my heart for him. Now he can argue with Maxine and Jeanne again.
