To Genes family. So sorry for your loss . Want to thank you for all the kindness your family shared with me. . He was a special man . I was so happy to be part of his life, he always talked about all his family and I’m sure was very proud of everyone of you. He talked about him and Brady having cookies and milk. Always had lots of stories to tell . One thing I also remember him telling me was when he was driving truck and was bored he would sing ,You Are My Sunshine. Always made me laugh. RIP! ❤️❤️
