Heavenly Birthday Wishes: Honoring Geno's Legacy of Love and Dreams

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

In loving memory of my wonderful husband, Geno, on what would have been his special day. Today, the air is filled with bittersweet memories, and my heart is heavy with both joy and sorrow as I celebrate the love we shared.

Love is creating a dream meant for two, and, we spun a tapestry of dreams that wrapped us in a cocoon of happiness. Love is believing that dreams will come true.

From the very beginning, we embarked on a journey hand in hand, believing in each other and in the beauty of our shared aspirations. We wanted the same things, and together, we were willing to work hard to turn those dreams into reality. The foundation of our love was built on trust, understanding, and a shared vision of a future filled with love and laughter. We had many vision boards!

We loved deeply, laughed often, and learned the art of compromise, understanding that it is the key to a harmonious life together. Through the highs and lows, we stood side by side, facing whatever challenges life threw our way. Together, we transformed every hurdle into an opportunity for growth and every setback into a stepping stone towards a brighter tomorrow. You embraced my children and their children and became a loving, adoring Paw Paw, who fiercely loved our family.

Geno, you were not just a husband; you were my partner in every sense of the word. You were my confidant, my rock, and my greatest supporter. The bond we shared was unbreakable, and the love we nurtured was everlasting.

As I celebrate your heavenly birthday, I can't help but feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the time we had together. You were more than I could have ever imagined – the best husband, the most incredible partner, and the truest friend. Each day with you was a treasure, a gift that I hold close to my heart.

So, Happy Heavenly Birthday, my Geno. Today, I celebrate you, our love, and the beautiful memories we created together and with our family. Though you are not physically present, your spirit lingers, and your love continues to guide me. Not a day goes by without a Geno story!

I believe he is Anna "Banana" Kruchten. My daughter, son and I had our traditional lunch on his birthday at the place he had lunch at every day...Bartlett's. He and the owner were good friends and talked for hours. Unfortunately he too has passed away.
