Richard and Brandy and all of the Kemper family, I am so sorry about Gene. He is at home with Louise and Cindy now and I'm sure he is happy to see his Lord and Savior he believed ever so faithfully in. He will be missed by anyone who knew him I'm sure. He was such a gentleman and polite as can be. All here at Columbus West Park miss him and they only got to know him for a short time. May God Bless you and May he ease your pain and sorrow.
Lori Graf (Richards mother-in-law)
