I miss you so much Poppy. Today marks a year since you were called home and it still hurts. I know you are home now and at peace and for that I am grateful. I try not to be selfish but I miss you so much. I always think about our memories and will forever hold them in my heart. You were a huge part of my life Poppy and always will be. Watch all your grand babies grow up

Uncle Gene. I will always remember you by your great sense of humor, and ability to always make me smile with the most random of quotes, and sayings. I hope that you are happy in heaven and are making Jesus smile and laugh even harder then I had with your funny quotes and awesome sense of humor. R.I.P. I will love and miss you, but we will all be together soon, so this isn't goodbye, merely see ya later. :)

Poppy today was a hard day laying you to rest. I still feel so numb that you aren't physically here anymore. But it gives me comfort knowing you are at peace. No more pain or sadness. You will always hold a special place in my heart and I will cherish every memory I had with you. I love you with all of my heart. We all will be together again one day. You will always be remembered.

Uncle Gene, you will be missed by all. We find comfort knowing you are now in the arms of Jesus and surrounded by all your family and friends in heaven.
I know my Dad was waiting for you with open arms.

Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me. (Psalm 23:4 NLT)
