    Gene you were not only my brother but my heart best friend and partner. A true companion in this life. You are my Butter Bean brother and will always be a part of me and my soul. I will always love you like you are always here. I will forever miss you. I will always feel lost without you here until I see you on the other shore and what a day that will be in heaven. I just can not believe you are gone so I must carry on some how. Your brother always Michael (AKA) Bocefus.
