Thanks to Shelley Ensz for her donation in loving memory of her husband, Gene, who enthusiastically served as Co-Founder and Vice President of the nonprofit International Scleroderma Network since our inception in 2002. Gene peacefully passed away on February 2, 2014, and he will be greatly missed by all. Posted 02/04/2014. (Also see: Gene Ensz and Sclero Shop/Donate)

Dear Shelley,

 

I am so sorry to hear that Gene has passed away.   A blessing that he is no longer suffering but you will miss him terribly.   My thoughts are with you and the rest of the family.

 

Love to you

Judyt

Dear Shelley

 

There are some things we should never have to read, in loving memory followed by our loved one's name is such a thing. No one could doubt that you and Gene had an extraordinary life together. 

 

Love from me & Michael

Oh my - tonight was the first time I've been here in a couple of years and this is what I see first. Oh Shelley, I just want to give you a huge hug right now and not let go! This is truly heartbreaking and my thoughts are with you Darlin. I'll be calling you within the next few days.

 

Lots and lots of hugs, Janey
