Dr. Gordon was my dentist for more than 40 years. My family loved and actually enjoyed going to the dentist because of him. We have missed seeing him over the last few years...he was a special person.

So shocked and saddened to learn of Dr. Gordon's death, today. Aside from being a wonderful dentist, he was always cheerful, full of humor and fun, always interested in the lives of everyone in our family, never forgetting the details of where we all were as the years rolled by. He watched my children grow up, being their dentist from age 3 to adulthood, then watched the parents grow old, too. I wish I had seen him over the last few years since he semi-retired, but I never seemed to catch him when in the office. Blessings to his family and to Twinkie, who I know will all suffer greatly at this loss of a kind, loving man.

Our condolences to your family and to Dr. Gordon's "professional family," Twinkie. He was a fine man who often spoke proudly of all of you, especially the grandchildren. Our family is thankful to have had the honor of knowing him, having been his patients for decades. We will all miss him.

My thoughts & prayers go out to The Gordon Family. I was saddened to read of Dr. Gordon's death. He was my Dentist for over 35 years. When he shared with me of his retirement...I was happy for him & his family but selfishly was sad that I'd be loosing the best Dentist a patient could have. He was such a thoughtful man & truly cared for his patients. We always talked about family things & vacations...he wasn't just my Dentist he was my friend!
