Gordon was a great friend . We will miss him very much. We had many laughs. He always wanted me to know his box # at Hume. #1. He was #1 in our books. A great mail carrier. He brought me some milestone mail in our lives also. Sadly missed but not forgotten. Peace to the family. Gordy and I had a standing joke. He always called me Jim Who from Whoville.

To all the family of Gordon's,
I always teased him about being my 'back pew Baptist'. And he always said he was there for his grandkids! He was a good man. I did have a few visits with him at the Vets Home, but they were not easy visits. I will say, he loved his family more than anything as that was the usual topic of conversation. May God bless all of you and thank God for his eternal hope.
