Rest in peace Geno!
Wish we had spent more time together cousin……Say hello to our family with the Lord
Geno, in our sadness there is joy, just knowing, you are dancing now!
It was my honor to have known you. You blessed me and all who knew you with your kindness and that big beautiful smile! Heaven is shinning even brighter now that you have arrived. No more pain for you, Geno! Until we see you again, Keep Smiling.
I will always remember Gene as a person that knew no strangers. You had the capacity to make every one around you feel a part of the party, no one ever felt left out when you were there too. Gene had a heart of gold and was always wanting those around him to feel special and they did because of you. I was allows proud to introduce you to many of my friends as the cousin who I had wished had been my brother instead. No more worries and no more pain, that is all that I’m thankful for at this time, because deep down I will miss you. I know that you forgave me too.
Love to you, Tony
