    I am so sorry for the loss of Gene, he was a beautiful soul. I shared life with Gene when he 1st moved into L'arche Clinton. We had the best time and he would always make me smile. He liked to help me frost cakes. I think he ate more frosting than he got on the cake, but we sure had fun. He will be missed.
