It’s always been “Joyce and Gene”. When I speak of either one I always use both their names. They always treated me like family. I thought of them often as I grew. Part of who I am and how I treat people is because of them. It breaks my heart that a part this wonderful team is no longer with us. Gene you will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joyce and the family at this time of sorrow. Love you all!

Dave and I are so sorry to hear about Gene's passing. Please accept our heartfelt condolences. It has been ever so many years that our lives have crossed paths but I cannot count the times you both were in our thoughts and conversations. We dont get back to New York to often but would love to get together with you if possible. Gene will be missed and will cherish the many fun memories of when we were young.
