I add my prayers for him and his family and friends to those already offered.

He is on my wanna meet list. I'm so sorry to hear that he's down. My prayers and thoughts are going to him and his family.

Now what you DON'T want him to do is talk to him while he's trying to get something done. Good grief! I don't think in the history of wrenching it's ever taken anybody 4 hours to change out levers!!! He was changing out my levers at ToTT one year and everyone kept coming by and talking to him. Every time they would talk to him he'd stop working on my bike and stand there and talk. I finally had to stand there and keep people from talking to him so he'd finish my bike! I told him I sure hated to see him at work. How on Earth did he do hair if someone started talking to him!!!
OOHHH and remember Vince when we were sitting at your house waiting on him to show up so we could leave for Green Bay and he called you and told you he wasn't going?? We were all saying WTF??? When all of a sudden here he comes up your driveway! He had stopped at the corner to call you to mess with us! Now THAT'S Gene! I love you Geno!

I remember him working on his bike way after dark at TOTT and just having a great time with everyone that walked by! And you are right Lori I could feel the tears welling up and then I just thought of his big smile and that his how I will always think of him!!

Some men think they are God's gift to women...not me...I think women are God's gift to ME...

HAHAHAHAHA I just thought of my favorite shirt of his. It says "If you see my bike on a trailer call 911. It's been stolen!"
