Beth Ann and family, I am Marcelle's daughter. I was sorry to hear of Gene's passing. It's been a long time since I last saw him, yet in many ways it seems not so long ago that we were all children. Anne and I were reminiscing about happy memories of visiting your home as children with our mom, plus so many fun family get-togethers on Memorial Day and every summer in Nephi with all the aunts, uncles and cousins. Those years have passed quickly. So many of them are now on the other side. It's not hard to imagine the laughter and excitement of happy reunions there, welcoming Gene home with much love. I know our family is eternal. Still, it is hard to say goodbye here for a time. May you find comfort and peace. Love, Camille

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to a longtime friend. You are gone from our sight but never from our hearts. And I still have the pen you gave me. It was a pleasure being your pharmacist and I cherish
having known you for so long.
My sincere condolences to Patricia and to all of his family.
