Ruth and I send our sincerest condolences.
My sincere condolences to the family. I have many fond memories growing up on Potanoc street right beside Gordon and Mary. What beautiful people they were. My most special memory is going to their lovely warm home each Christmas. We would go next door and our favorite neighbors would have enough delicious food to feed an army. As a child this was the night I waited for all year. It made christmas. Although I haven’t seen Gordon in years, I have beautiful memories of him that I will cherish forever. What a delightful man he was. Sending big hugs to family and friends from Singapore.
