Uncle Gordy,
My memories are mostly from my childhood. I remember being really excited to come to your house for family dinners and play with cabbage patch kids and going to the Stadium.
I am so happy I got to see you and get pictures of us together, I will cherish them for ever. I love you so much and you will be so missed.

Everyone in our family called me Little Gordon. At the time being so young I didn’t think much about it. Now having lost my Uncle Gordy. It is a beautiful memory. Along with 67 yrs worth. You will be missed. I could write a book on all our great times together. He was game for anything. Like the time he hopped on our skate board. Slipped. Was off work for 2 weeks. Uncle Gordy. He was 20 yrs older than us kids. But he was so cool. He could have been 5 yrs older. One of the guys. I will miss you DOC. His nick name we gave him. RIP. Say hi to our Grandpa George. Grandma Kirstine. My DAD Vernon. Sisters Ganeva. A Sylvia. Love you. Merlin ❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
