I think of Gene when I see the flowers bloom and trees leaf out. I feel his presence when I hear the birds sing or a squirrel scampering down a tree looking for a handout. He is there when I see a beautiful sunset or the full moon rising. He loved to see the bears when they came through our yard as they did this spring. Together, we enjoyed the simple things in life. He will always be there with me as I continue to witness the beauty in the wonders of nature that God gives us with each changing season.
