UPDATE: 11/14/15 – “This is the Father of Eugene and would like to express our heartfelt thanks to ALL OF YOU for such remarkable efforts in finding our son. You are a beacon of light to us, to all, and I believe even to America. You have renewed our hope in humanity, in ordinary people with extraordinary love. Your kindness and love for one soul makes me believe that Eugene saw that in Portland. Your concern for each other shows through all your examples. The pain we endure is much less because of you. Know that we all love you and hopefully see you all in person and thank you personally. May the Lord bless you all and keep you and may his face continue to shine upon you always. God bless. Rafael/Gigi Vibar”
