My friend Gordy is now with the Lord. We shared great times together in Promise Keepers meetings. He will be greatly missed by our group. I had the privilege of praying together with him several times. Gordy will remain in our hearts. We will meet again in heaven.
Gordy was so blessed to be a part of such a loving family. Those left behind grieve but he is praising God now.
We are so thankful for the many years we knew and loved Gordon. It was a joy to see Gordon and Shannon together sharing “life”. We are sure their love and friendship was a gift from our Loving Lord. They could bring each other a smile and share a moment that was a joy to witness. Gordon was a kind, thoughtful, fun, caring man. He will be missed by many. We pray your precious memories will bring you peace.
You all are in our thoughts and prayers.
