Gene Arensberg: Friend & Gold Lover
SIEM REAP, Cambodia -- Here with the group, and in a day, we travel to Ban Lung, headquarters of Angkor Gold.
From this kingdom, with great sadness, I must report that of a departure to another Kingdom.
TCR family, Gene Arensberg, a friend and fellow newsletter writer, left us a day ago from a Houston hospital, where he had been battling multiple surgeries and complications from a lung transplant.
The news came from his wife, now his widow. Tricia Arensberg. Trish had been keeping us all informed with regular updates.
I accompanied Gene on several gold mine tours. Gene, a Texas rancher, came into my life in 2002 or so, and we shared ideas and what he used to all "stink bids." His letter, The Got Gold Report, was faithful to gold and insightful.
He also held me up in a time when I needed emotional support. Once, Gene sent me the most remarkable letter, handwritten pages and pages, that boosted me during a tough time.
There are few folks I know out there who loved gold more than Gene, who treated his wife as well as he did and who had the most infectious smile in the states of Texas and Georgia, where he spent most of his time.
We were the same age.
I will miss Gene, and when I get it together here in the kingdom of Cambodia, I will be sending some thoughts. God and everyone else bless you, Gene, and Trish.
