I have such fond memories of Uncle Gene, Aunt Maude and Lloyd. I remember hiking from Grandma and Grandpa's farm into theirs and ice skating on the pond in winter. Such fun. Uncle Gene you were always so kind to everyone who were lucky enough to be a part of your life. You will be missed by many.

Uncle Gene was one of Mom's favorite Uncles and it was always a treat for us to visit with him, Aunt Maude and Lloyd.He always had a project going and he always made us feel special.I remember him cutting Jack's hair when he was little.I have several of the rocking chairs he made on display in my living room.I will surely miss being able to visit with him, although I wasn't able to do it often.I took my old dog to visit him one time and he just kept saying "That's the biggest dog I've ever seen!"I have Alaskan Malamutes.
