Sang the speakers high above the Rockefeller Center skating rink, as the statue of Prometheus gazed down on two young women, as giddy as schoolgirls. You'd have never guessed from their antics that one was a successful New York City doctor-and that one was one of Hollywood's most beloved stars!
It began when one of Gene's closest friends from Cos Cob phoned asking Gene to New York for a holiday reunion. Appointments on both ends were juggled and soon the day arrived. Gene, in a trim green suit, waved to her friend across the plaza. After a delightful lunch, they found themselves in front of the rink. "I haven't in years, " said the Doctor.
"Me, neither, " said the Movie Star. And with rented skates on their feet and laughter on their lips, the two old friends skated the afternoon away.
As dusk began to fall, Gene looked into her friend's eyes. "Thank you for this perfect gift, " she said.
But I haven't given you ANY present! "Oh, but you have, " insisted Gene.
You've given me your time and your friendship. That's just about the most perfect gift of all! And as the two of them hugged in the middle of the rink.
Gene's friend wiped away a perfect tear. As Gene made her way back to her hotel that evening, she spotted a wreath in a store window that would match perfectly with the Christmas tree and decorations at her hotel. All of the staff were touched by Gene's gesture of good will, most especially, the concierge, who appreciated that Gene had noticed the Christmas decorations with which he had so painstakingly adorned the hotel. The wreath had gold stars all over it reminding him of Gene, and a bow that matched perfectly with the ones he had put on the tree.
Every year when he hung the wreath, he could not help but think of her and what a kind person she was.. Gene comes in her original white signature box. Gene's doll stand is included. COA and story card are included.
