Gene was one the best people I ever met. He was a great boss and friend. I worked for him twice in Employment Security days. We taped the floor once and did his office like Les Nesman's on WKRP before they but up the walls for it. Lots of laughter and good times. When the day came for him to retire, I cried. Donna, you have my deepest sympathies and you are in my thoughts. Gene will always hold a place in my heart. Love you.
