We were saddened to hear of Gene’s passing. He was always friendly and had a smile for everyone. He went on a trip with us & Eddie, Jr to see my Dad in the nursing home in Augusta, GA a few years back. We will be praying for the family and hope to see Gene again, singing in heaven’s choir.

Papa Burger was way more than just my best friends Dad. He was my dad. I love that man so much. Back in our grade school days he has his hand full with Emily and I. We were inseparable and he did everything in his power to make sure she and I were taking care of and were able to do what we wanted. His love for Emily was so apparent. I pray for comfort for Emily as well as Jared and the rest of the family. I LOVE YOU PAPA BURGER. REST IN PEACE.
