    I miss you so much, Gene. You were the best brother. I admired you so much. With all your back pain and brain tumor, you never complained or felt sorry for yourself. I'll miss your infectious smile, our visits in Hanover, going antiquing, and our long phone calls. I treasure the book you gave to me for Christmas one year - Living Christmas Every Day. That's how you lived your life. Until we meet again, you'll live in my heart. I love you!
