Dear Beverly and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Conley's passing. We have known Conley for a long time and have greatly enjoyed his company throughout the years. Charlie played golf with Conley many times and they were always enjoyable outings, particularly for Conley, since he won every time.
Our sincere sympathies are with Beverly and the entire Gordon family.
Sincerely, Charlie and Wilma Massinople.

We were friends and coworkers for many years. We worried together, we laughed together and we grieved together. Conley was there when my parents passed away with a gentle spirit and words of comfort. Conley was my friend and will always hold a place in my heart. Godspeed my friend.
To Bev, and family, May God walk with and bless each of you during the difficult time. I am so sorry for your loss.
