Denise, gorden jr, and jennifer,
I am so sorry for the loss of big gorden. He was such a fun person to be around always joking around with us neighborhood kids. Always in a good mood. We had some fun memories on 30th! Can just picture him now calling me "sha-mell" jus like he always did when he saw me. Sure gonna miss him dearly. Praying for y'all during this difficult time.

Denise, Jennifer, and Gorden Jr,

We are so sorry for your loss. "Big Gorden" was truly a kind person with a great sense of humor. I remember him dressing up on Halloween, sitting on the front porch, and scaring all of us neighborhood kids. I even remember the whole neighborhood getting together to set up our pool, but specifically Gorden who really put in the extra effort to help my dad. Great memories...My family and I continue to pray for you all. Remember the good times.

Dimi, Jason, and Anthi Crowell
