It saddens me that I waited so long to reconnect with two people that meant so much to me.....only to find out that both had went on to their great reward......its comforting to know that you're not only with god, but you're together.

To my good friend Gordon.
I don't have words to express my sadness for the loss of Doris. I hope you can find solice in knowing that she is now enjoying her reward for all of the good things she did for people throughout her life. You were both the best neighbors and friends that I could have asked for and I will never forget the kindness that you have both shown me.
May the peace and blessings of Our Lord be upon you.
