IN MEMORY OF GORDON PAGE:
Now that I have retired, I finally have time to do some of my own writing. Today, I remembered how we sat together in your living room in Wisconsin as we put the review and finishing touches on your manuscript for "Deals on Wheels." You honored me, not only by accepting my suggestion for the title, but also in your acknowledgements for the book as your "language consultant." What fun we had pouring over all those pages, making the content understandable for your target audience.
My only regret is that we never got together to enjoy that delicious dinner you promised us in appreciation for the Christian brotherly love of working together to make the book successful and be distributed into several editions.
It's ok - we'll enjoy dinner together - someday - in heaven!
Rest in Peace, Harry "KindSir" Fritz (now residing in Tacoma, WA)

And if that's not be then at least you can take comfort in the fact that hes once again in the arms of his father. I too have an autistic son and know the challenges you faced as a parent and trying to make the best decisions concerning your son wellbeing.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've recently seen your story from 1994 on Unsolved Mysteries. I hope one day your family will find Gordie Jr. I also have a brother with a very similar story as Gordie's. He's autistic and was diagnosed back in the mid 1980's. They've never been able to help him. He's been on about every medication drug that was suppose to help but only made matters worse. God bless your entire family. Prayers

He was like a father to me, the greatest salesperson I have ever known, took me under his wing and nurtured me, to Mrs. Page and the boys, may the love and the peace of God bind your hearts and minds NOW and forevermore.

Long time friend from Grosse Baptist Church. Sill remember a group of fellows were at church picnic on Bob-lo island and saw a group of girls from my high school (Denby). We talked a little and that is where Gordon met Linda and the rest is history. Praying for you Linda and you family.

May your pain subside and warm memories of time together take its place. I will always keep an eye out for Gordie, always.

Mr. Page, I'm sorry you never got to learn what happened to Gordie before you left us, but you will get the answers you need now that you're with God. May He wrap His arms around you and comfort you from now on. My thoughts and prayers are with your loving family.

There is so much that should be said at this time, but now words seem inadequate. Just hold on to the memorable moments you spent together that will remain in your heart and let Gods love comfort you. Psalms 68:20"

Richard and I were so sorry to hear of my cousin Gordon's passing. Growing up and living in Atlanta, our interaction with the family in Michigan was limited to a number of summer trips in various station wagons, but they were memorable. I dearly loved Aunt Bertha, and loved visiting her home where she would show me around her flower garden (that's where I got that bug!) I only remember Gordon and Gary from when they were already young men - all the more reason to impress me! I loved Gordon's "bigger than life" personality, and am still proud to point out his book to people I've advised about buying cars. Prayers and condolences to Linda, the boys, and the rest of the family. Carol (Andrus) and Richard Wazlavek

Gordon will truly be missed. My husband Ron and I dearly loved this precious man. He had a heart of Gold and was such a blessing to our family. We enjoyed his singing heart in our choir for many presentations and services. Linda and family you are in our prayers. Until we meet on the side and sing a song there. God Bless you. All our love.

Dear Linda, Gordon Jr., Lance and Todd, Sorry to hear of your Husband and Father's Passing. But as the Apostle Paul tells us in scripture, "To be absent from the body, is to to be present with the LORD!" What a blessing we have as Christians, knowing that you will see him again in Glory!

Gordon and Linda Page and their three boys were nearby neighbors to us when they lived in Brookfield, Wisconsin, They were active members of our Church and respected in the automobile sales business. In those days, the country went through tough financial times, and Gordon had to shut down his Chevrolet dealership. With his positive Christian attitude, Gordon never gave up, and even wrote a book then. He alway advised people to have a "God-filled day". - Bob&Jane Mitchell & family
