Jeff is my favorite son in law. He so loved his Grandma Gorden. He has endeared us to her. Always looked forward to seeing her at the kids birthday celebrations. She always remembered her great grand children's birthdays. Carter will be the last one to have received his birthday from her, as she sent his gift before she passed for his July 7 th birthday. Thoughts and prayers for Ken ,Marcia, Jeff, Greg and Kendra, along with their families.
