Dear Thomas Family, I was shocked to hear of Eugenes passing as he will be greatly missed. I worked with Gene early in my career and found him to be one of the most sympathetic and caring men that I have met. He could be tough when he had to and soft when he needed to be ,a true friend to all. Rest in peace my friend and know you helped a lot of people throughout your life. May god shine his light on you and help you all through this most difficult time. Sincerely, Frank Cempa
