Betty and Family, We are sorry to hear of Gene's passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

To Betty and words are sufficient to express my sadness. Gene was like the big brother I didn't have. But he was in and out of our house so much that Mama and Daddy felt as if he were one of theirs.Rest in peace, dear Gene.

Dear Betty and Family, Mr. Overton gave me opportunities at Piedmont Geriatric Hospital even though I lacked the "proper" education. I will always be truly grateful for his confidence in me as a manager and as a leader. Thanks for being a good friend and a great neighbor for years! Respectfully, Steve, Annah, Cody, Morgan, and Tyler Bowen

Dear Betty and family, My thoughts and prayers are with you in the passing of your Gene. I will always remember his friendship with Ryland. May he rest in peace. And may you be comforted by your good memories.
