Uncle Gene may you Rest In Peace as you are reunited with those that went home before you. Christina, Bo, Mike and Jessica you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Christina and Mike - I am so very sorry to read the notice in the paper this morning of your father's passing. Often I recall the time I was with First Church and the people I worked with. Gene was most helpful once when I needed some information about some OTC medications. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May the Lord be with you in the days and weeks ahead.

Christina, my mom and I were so sad to see this in the paper today. We lived 3 doors down from Hebble's for years and saw your father on a daily basis. He even bought me a cake and surprised me for my 21st birthday. He was the kindest and most gentle soul we ever met. May he rest in peace. Kathy
