Mike and Sam: I was deeply saddened to learn of your dad's passing this week. Uncle Gordon and aunt alta were very thoughtful of and attentive to my mother (Dorothy, uncle Gordon's oldest sister) throughout her life and especially during the last years of her life when she was very ill. My sister, Cris Streker, and myself always appreciated those kindnesses and kept those memories in special places in each of our hearts. What a great baby brother uncle Gordon was! God bless you all and hopefully you will find comfort in knowing what special and caring parents you had. Sincerely,

Cris Streker

Your Dad is my mother, Dorothy's, brother. She being the eldest, he the youngest. We thought he was such a handsome young man in his uniform. When we were children a whole lot of time was spent together ... just visiting. No one had money. So we just spent time together. I regret that time passed and we all moved and years got away; and contact lost. He and Aunt Velma have been our connection with their generation for a long time. God's blessing to you, his children.
