A limb has fallen from our family tree. My Uncle was so strong, so loving. I will miss him dearly. My mind at ease knowing he is reunited with my Aunt, the prettiest girl in the room. Love and peace to all my cousins. Rhea
So sorry to the family! Gene was a wonderful man and he will be sorely missed!
Love you all,
Sending much love to the Compton family. I feel blessed to have been part of your family circle for so many years.
Gene was a good loyal man and friend. He will be missed by those of us who cherished his friendship. Georgia and I will keep the Compton family in our prayers
