My memories of Gene are all happy and confirming. He rode the elevator where I was working as a novice to get orders from Mother Corona. He married the same year I was received. He drove me to my first mission assignment in Illinois. I rode his bus back and forth to Alverno and St. Joseph’s repeatedly. I enjoyed his quintet of children and Rhoda giving a concert at Alverno. I rode to Omaha with him going out to get Sisters for retreat. He taught me how to change a tire and check the oil in a car. We visited many times as neighbors at Alverno. We celebrated fifty years of dedication to our chosen treasures. Gene is a most kindly and affirming person and we are together in the Spirit.

I have long and fond memories of Gene and his family. Rhoda and Gene were married the same year we were recieved into the Order — “Forty-niners.” Gene drove me to my first mission; many times between SJC and Alverno; once to Omaha. We rejoiced with each birth and enjoyed a concert featuring their quintet of children. Gene taught me to change a tire and check the oil for a car. Good Man, you are; good Life.

May each tear that falls be a gentle reminder that you and your father meant so much to each other, and that no loss or sorrow, time or distance can ever take that away.
