Memories Timeline


    • Treva and family, Doug and I are so sorry about the passing of Gene. We always loved seeing and talking with him at your sales. He was so kind and friendly. He will be missed. Treva, Anne, and family you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  1. Gene taught me to drive when I was 12. He tore up the clutch in his car and told Mother that I did it. He and Billy made corncob pipes and sent me in the house to get matches. I got the switching because they could not have smoked if I had not gotten the matches. I never let them forget that. But they both were only a call away anytime I needed them. No girl ever had better brothers. I miss their calls just to tell me they loved me. Stay out of trouble boys, until I get there. I Love You – Your little sister!

  2. Treva, My dear cousin, you’re so special to me though we have never met. You’re in my prayers. Much love to you and yours.

  3. It’s been awhile since we have seen any of you. We are so sorry to hear of Gene’s passing. We love all of you and are thinking of you. Praying to our Lord and Savior to comfort you.

  4. Treva and family, I am so sorry for your loss of Gene. He was such a kind man and I always enjoyed talking to him when I came to the estate sales. You all are in my prayers.

  5. Gene was The Best. My best friend and the best man I have ever known. I love him forever. Many of the best times of my life were spent with Gene, traveling, fishing and just enjoying each other’s company. His passing leaves a hole in my heart.

  6. Sweet Treva and Anne, it was always a wonderful day when I got to see Gene’s smile at one of your sales. I am so sorry for your lose and you will be in my prayers for the peace that only comes from our heavenly father. I miss seeing you both. May God bless.

  7. Treva, Anne & Carl, what an amazing man Gene was. We will miss his smile, his giggles, his kindness, his knowledge…we will miss Gene. Our love and prayers of peace to you all.

    Dearest sister Treva, may the memories of Gene help you find peace. We love you.

  11. Papaw,

    You were the absolute BEST Papaw a girl could ask for! When I was little you would take us on fun trips during the summer! Grandfather Mtn, Santa’s Land, all the trips to the races riding in the back of your truck, ! You taught me so many things! My favorite – work smarter, not harder! You were always so selfless. Anytime I would call, you would drop everything & come to save the day! Like the time I ran over a piece of metal & busted my tire in the work parking lot, when there was an opossum in the back yard in the middle of the day, when I got snowed in at WCU – you hopped in your little black truck and drove to come pick me up – it took us 3 hours to get home that day & slush was clumping up on the windshield. You were always so good about driving in the snow – you’d never know you had an artificial eye, nothing got past you! One night my pipes froze, so I came up to stay with you & Mamaw until they got fixed. Well I ended up staying for a few months while I finished college. Those months I will cherish forever! You wanted to go to the grocery store for me so I could pack my lunch! I always had turkey sandwiches for lunch – You hated turkey! Years ago you got food poisoning from turkey (not Mamaw’s cooking) & just the thought of it made you queasy, but at the time I didn’t know that. That’s just the kind of Papaw you were – you would do anything for those you love! When you got a new phone I helped you get it set up & you took a picture of me & Mamaw in front of your desk. You said you needed a picture of your girls! That picture is still on your phone to this day. When I close my eyes and think of you, my mind flashes back to when I was about 4 years old, riding down the road in your big red truck, my feet barely came to the edge of the seat & I was wearing my stylish solid pink keds, my feet were swaying from side to side in rhythm to the music on the radio & singing Elvira – “giddy up, a oompapa, oompapa, mow mow”

    Thank you for loving me!

    I will ALWAYS be YOUR LITTLE BIT! <3

    Hugs n' Kisses FOREVER

    I love you Papaw!

  16. Dear Ms. Treva and family,
    I’m so sorry to hear from my aunt Kim, that Mr. Gene has gone to heaven. I still remember you and Mr. Gene when I was very young and had the great trip down to North Carolina to visit uncle’s family. Had my first taste of grits and southern comfort cooking back then and the warmth of your southern hospitality with you and Mr. Gene as well. My family and I send our deepest condolences to you all. May Mr. Gene Rest in Peace and that you find comfort in knowing he’s in a good place right now. Love, Thuy and Family
