Dear Family of Gene Braun, It was grand to visit and hug each one of you last evening. I was able to bring my Dad up to Gene's graveside services today. The Military Honors, taps, the wonderful bag-pipe player and the prayer was beautiful. I am sure your father was very pleased. I know he is very proud of all of you and loves you very much. Me too, love Kimberlee
