    This is a fantastic idea! I love it and can't wait to participate! I'm curious to learn about other people answers to these questions that you have outlined. On a related subject: On 23 August 2012, Gene would have been a centenarian (OMG, can you believe that?) What kind of commemoration is being planned, if any? If anyone has any updates from his family, it would be cool to share. Thanks for posting!
