Gordon is now a member of God's Divine Family. His suffering ended like gentle winds when summer begins. And, though his earthly body rests in statue like repose, when HE declared the new day, Gordon's sweet spirit passed through Heaven's open gate. A dear cousin began his walk in Paradise. With love and prayers,
Marie, Jean, and Larry
