I am sorry to hear that your grandpa passed away. I want you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Also remember that you are a part of our family and we are here for you, if you need anyone you know where we are. Gordon is up in heaven pain free and happy, seeing all the family. He is there with my Dad and my grandparents, and probably talking about all the family that is left on this earth. Keep your memories, no one can take that from you. Gordon knew that you loved him and he will continue to watch over you, from heaven. Take care!
Theresa, Grandma Pat, Dustin, Kelly, Isaiah, Hannah, Molly, Chris, Eric and Johna.
