Just wanted to say to the family of Eugene Lawrence that Uncle Gene was one of my favorite people to visit when I made it home to Willard. I know that words can’t take away the pain but know that he lived a long and happy life. I am so glad I made it home before his passing sometimes things happen for a reason, love you all Sandee
