I never met Mrs Lola, but through Mr. Gordon, I know she was a wonderful woman whom he loved very much. I have spent many hours at the nursing home with Mr. Gordon. My prayers are with Karen, Kathy and Mr Gordon. May God give you all the precious strength you all need to make it through this painful time. God will carry you. He is your great comforter. My love and prayers are with you!!
