    Lisa, Willie and Jon, although I’d only met Gordy a handful of times, it was clear to me he was a man of true character. Sensitive, loving and loyal to the enth degree. No words can offer comfort as you navigate the days after his sudden farewell, but allow me to give you virtual hugs and say ‘ I’m so very sorry for your pain’.
