  1. Gene (and Vi) touched my heart the first day I met them. I am so happy I was able to have that opportunity. What a gentle soul with giant character! He will be surely missed. Our thoughts and prayers to his family, especially his sweetheart Viola.

  2. Dear Mrs. White, I’m sorry to learn of your husband Eugene’s passing. Please accept my deepest sympathy. I remember him as always having a big smile and being a warm, friendly person, when I met him years ago at various functions. I am keeping him and you in my prayers.

  3. Dear Vi and Family

    My heart is broken for you and I want you to know that I am praying for you and keeping you in my thoughts. How blessed you were to be together happily for so many years. What a gift to treasure! Though I only knew Gene for a short while, I thought of him and think of you as dear friends. May God comfort you in your precious memories.

  4. Dear Aunt Vi, Renee, Tracie and the family,
    We are so saddened by Uncle Gene’s death. He is the last of my mom’s siblings and now Vi is the last of that generation of our family. We are glad we did get to visit with you when we came to Rochester this summer. Dave and I hope that we can come close to matching your beautiful love story. Our love to all.

  5. We are sending much love at this difficult time. We cherish such wonderful memories with Eugene and your whole family he will always be remembered with a smile.

    Warm Hugs
