Mamie, Martha & Leslie and Bruce,
I am deeply sorry for the loss of Gordon. He always had a big smile, a great sense of humor along with great story to tell. I loved listening to him talk about our family lineage and showing pictures from years past at our reunions. He will be greatly missed. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
