    On many occasions I was sent up the street to Gene (& Robert’s) IGA by my mom to fetch something for her (likely something for her pies). Gene, as well as his brother Robert, were two of the friendliest guys you’d find anywhere. Their IGA was a staple in the community. RIP Gene.

    To Gene’s family, prayers for comfort and peace. Gene and his brother and their families were quite an “institution” in their own right in Butner and surrounding communities. They were always so kind and helpful. Gene always had a smile on his face. Certainly he’s smiling now. ❤️🙏

    To the family, I am deeply saddened by the grief you are feeling.
    Knowing of God’s love for you, continue to look to him when ” he will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, suffering, and pain will be no more. ” – Revelation 21:3,4
    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ” – 1 Corinthians 15:26
    How comforting to know that this will be a thing of the past and through Christ Jesus a resurrection for our loved ones.
