My deepest sympathy to the family. Gordon was a co-worker and he was such a friendly and thoughtful person. We walked out of our office building together the night before he died and he seemed fine - nothing appeared to be wrong. His passing was such a shock and he will be missed by all of us at work. Rest in peace my friend.
