    About 69 years ago a new boy came to school and that evening I found out he lived right behind me. We were friends all the way through High School. We have been in sporadic contact since then, usually about twice a year at High School reunions. We have always been close friends. Marie and family, I know your loss is great and all of us feel a part of that loss. For me, an era has ended, Goodbye Gene, old friend!
