Ann and family,

I am so sorry for your loss! Ann thank you for sharing Gordon with me and my family. Because of his encouragement, mom had the double lung transplant. He was always so kind to me and my children. I am honored that I was able to know him and have wonderful memories. It seems like yesterday I saw the excitement and twinkle in your eyes as you became his wife. Thank you also for having the funeral online so I could be there virtually. I love you and look forward to making more memories with you.

Gordon was a classmate and friend. He always gave his all in sports and academics. He will be greatly missed by the class of 1964 when we meet for our reunion which he and Ann worked very hard to bring about. Prayers for Ann and all the family. He was a good fella❀️

I never really spoke to Mr. Milby in my 4 years at Doss. Seen him in the halls and in the Gym many a time. I do remember him fondly though. He seemed a kind and wise man and I know his family and friends will truly miss him. Peace and love to his family and may he rest in peace.
