Condolences to Eugene's family. He was a very nice Juda classmate when we were in grades 1-4 until I moved away.

Although our school years are decades ago, I will always remember Eugene sitting behind me in the third (or fourth) grade. Each lunch hour, he would open his thermos and have the warm, steaming hot dog that was packed in his lunch bucket! Our 1960 graduation was a small class, but we will always remember our classmates of those years at JHS. My prayers are with you, Nancy. Kristine (Friedrich) Morrissey

Gene consistently said hello and took time to talk when I stopped at Landmark in Juda - ALWAYS had a smile. Condolences to the Salzwedel family.
