Robin Little - May 26, 2015

We at Carlex thought the world of Eugene and we prayed he would one day come back to work with us. We were thrilled when he was able to come back for a few months, but saddened when he was not able to continue to work. I used to pick on him and call him “my favorite supervisor”, but I wasn’t really picking, he was and honestly still is my fave! I hope he knew that! I pray you find peace in all the wonderful memories of Eugene. I don’t have to tell you how much he is loved and how much he will be missed! May the Lord give you the strength to get through this time. He will always be with you. God bless.

Caroline and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Just know lots of people are praying and thinking of your family at this time. I’m so sorry. Leta
