Over the past 14 years, I became a friend of Gene’s. He has told me many happenings about his life. I have seen him laugh and cry. He was a man that had so much love in his heart for his family and friends. I will miss him dearly.

SENSE

As I ascend the mountain

I feel the cool wind across my cheek.

The scent of crisp clean enters my nostrils.

It tickles the thoughts of all things new.

The sound of PEACE enters my head;

And fulfillment rushes over my being.

The smallest creatures are all around.

I am in tune with the EARTH; she has accepted me.

As I follow the path, the long journey it takes me,

But at the end of the path I find Iíve chosen correctly.

There to meet me was the LIGHT of contentment and JOY.

JOY of none Iíd never felt or breathed.

And the HEAVENS accepted me.

No more uncertain journeys,

For my SOUL is safe foreverÖ
