Gary, Carol, and family:
It’s sad to hear the news about Gordon. I remember the summer and winter breaks from college when I had the pleasure of working with him at Pioneer/Sherwood. He set a fine example for me (& others), and was always a great guy to turn to for help.
May God comfort and strengthen you in the days ahead, and provide you many fond memories in the coming years.
