    My Dearest Brother Gordon, I never got to know you or meet you, but you have been in my thoughts and prayers since I learned about you approximately 40 years ago. I tried to find you and our brother Larry, but I could not. Unfortunately, this age of information did not exist when I initially attempted to locate you. I am thrilled to read of the love that others held for you. You must have been a wonderful person to be around & I am so glad that you were blessed with a great wife, 2 lovely daughters and other family & friends who could love & esteem you as you no doubt deserved. May the Lord bless & keep you in His loving Kingdom for all eternity! I pray that over there we will be able to enjoy each other’s companionship since we were deprived of that pleasure in this world. I love you, my father’s son, and I pray that you will know that he loved you, too. You should all be together now. Please keep a spot for me & I will do what I can to get to the Southwell Mansion that God has prepared for us. My love to you, my dear brother, May the Lord continue to bless your precious soul! Your little sister, Pearl
