A Tribute To Gene

Thank you for bearing and sharing the good times, the bad times, the love, and the tears with me for over 50 years. I will miss you. We never know what life will bring. Today, I know I had a wonderful friend. Although you are no longer here to create new memories, those we shared will be in my heart forever.

The one thing you asked of me is to be here for your home going. Unfortunately, the current events prevented me from being here today; However, you are in my thoughts. So we’re sending you home today. Your spirit will live on, fly free, my friend; we're here to see you along.

Forever your friend, Shelia Cox Wade

As a young girl I remember going to Norfolk Virginia to see my family and always going to aunties house to visit. When I tell you walking into her house always had me in amazement. Everything had a place. Nothing was out of order. It was like the most beautiful museum where you’d dare touch the white couches. She had a room set up like a boutique. Wall to wall clothes racks and some of the most beautiful garments I’ve ever seen in my life. A woman of pure class and elegance with the most comical spirit and faith beyond measure.

Auntie Gene changed my life. I could never be auntie... I am grateful to have had the chance to tell her in December of how she made me realize as a young lady that it was ok to be funny, classy, smart and a child of God at the same time. Gene represented all that and more!!!
RIH Lady of Elegance!!!! We love you❤️
