To the Rivers family, I am sorry for your loss. Stephan, your eulogy to your F-I-L was loving and spoke so well of the man, those he loved and your love for him. Thanks for the insight into the life of a unique man. It is easy to see why you admired him so.

I'm so sorry; many heartfelt condolences. My favorite memory of Gene is our game of "will Joey manage to hug me before I get to the car?" ;-) He will be missed. My love to all.
