You can reach out to them on EMAIL: H A C K M A V E N S 5 @ G M A I L. C O M or Call/Text/WhatsApp: [+ 1 (2 0 9) 4 1 7 – 1 9 5 7] for any kind of credit fix.

My sincere condolences to entire family. I can call Geno a friend for 40+ yrs. Many memories, like younger days of him taking me to watch deer in his AMC eagle 4x4 car. Then later on in life playing ball at at open gym.. lol if Geno got fouled he came up swinging. I remember after a pretty heated bball scuffel he said “ maybe this just isnt my game”. I will miss our Bears/Packers banter! Geno always went out of his way to strike up conversation. Geno, you lived your life your way , and I respect that! RIP my friend
