My Nana was one of the most beautiful souls inside and out. Her home was always my “home away from home”. Countless summers, school vacations, and weekends away were spent with her and Pa. She was beyond generous, kind, gentle, and I never knew her to utter anything mean or hurtful about another person. If I can be half the grandmother (someday) she was for me, then I’d be happy. Til we meet again, Nana. ♥️

I will always remember Janie so fondly for her humor and fantastic smile. Her whole face crinkled up when she was happy. She loved her little scotties, her children and was devoted to her dear husband. Rest peacefully, Aunt Janie.

I remember that Aunt Janie and Uncle and all their kids were a lot of fun when used to visit them way back when they lived in Littleton. I was truly in love with Gene, the one boy. He was a little older than I.
After the family relocated to Loudon and all the kids grew up, I never visited there.
When Gene died young I was devastated. My mom and dad wouldn't let me attend his funeral. I know Janie and Clar took it very hard.
Years later Janie and Clar would visit my parents in Moultonboro and sometimes I would be there.
It has been my mom, Clar's cousin Bev has told about Janie's serious decline in health.
I am so sorry to learn she is gone, but I believe she is in a better place and is finally at peace.
Lovingly,
Sharon Pocock

To all my dear Gordon Friends,

So many years separate our families friendships, but memories are etched in my mind so very clearly. Our years of summertime bliss form extensive novels in my mind as if our play were yesterday. Oh, how I miss my dear friends Gene and Pam and now we say goodbye to Jane. Sending my love to Clarence and Kathleen. Warmest thoughts, love, Rob
