    Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. I (Jeff) have known Gene since Anthony Dawkins worked for him many years ago. I always enjoyed being around him. We will miss seeing him at various restaurants.

    I am sorry for your loss. Gene was such a great person and I will always have the fondest of memories of the time i shared with him and the others at the chicken house. He did love the auction and I feel privileged to have known him.
