Gordon, I knew you only through Helen's eyes. God has another angel in his heavenly choir. May God keep your family closely held in the palms of His hands and watch over them in this time of grief.

Rest in Peace Gordon, you will be missed by many, we will never forget you, I close my eyes and remember so clearly yours and Helens visits to our home, and our visits with you and Helen at your home, I will always remember us sitting in your garage drinking coffee and just talking about everything, your had your own TV and A/C in there, I think that might have been your favorite place to be towards the end. I know when Helen goes in there now, she will see you sitting there. Our prayers are with you always, love, Your sister-in-law, and Helen's sister Mary & Johnny.
