Timmy , Linda , Glenn and family, Thinking of all of you during this life event . Uncle Gene was always a favorite uncle ! Always a smile and made us laugh. A favorite memory : Grandaddy Baynes horse threw your dad off after rearing and bucking ( just like the movies. ). There he was unharmed on the ground while I was sent down the road to catch Dusty. What an afternoon ! Love to you all. Brenda Billy and Bobby and family.
