When I learned of Gene Curry's death my mind took me back to the journey of public education we began together way back in kindergarten.  Gene lived on W. 24th St and I lived on E. 24th St, so we were enrolled at Central Elementary.  Often times for the class picture from kindergarten through sixth grade we were placed next to each other or close in the front row because of our height or lack of.  Gene always had a big grin.  

Our journey after high school was different.  Gene stayed in South Sioux.  In fact, he lived just nine blocks from where he grew up and worked at Curry's flooring, a business not far from where he lived as a youth.  As I thought of Gene's life journey so close to home and my journey and many other classmates who have ventured far from home, we all will be Home together someday no matter where we chose to live.

I am glad Gene was a longtime classmate and I am grateful he is now in his eternal home.

Home Sweet Home, Gene!

Gene and I both lived on West 24th street, infact he lived right across from me. We went hunting together as often as we could, or just sat and talked. He never had a cross word that I can remember.

Rest in peace Gene
