Sorry to hear of your loss. Thoughts and prayers to your family.

"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget."

I always liked Gordon. He was a gentle soul and I can remember sharing a laugh on a number of occasions with him. I always appreciated the respectful way that he spoke to people when he encountered them in town. Sharon, please know that I am praying for you and am deeply sorry for your loss!
