Mr. Gordon's name was one I heard from a very young age and one that our family became very familiar. He was always apart of the stories dad shared of his early business adventures. Many times over, dad expressed the utmost respect and graditude towards a business savvy man, as Mr. Gordon, who believed in an eager to learn young man. Our family is forever indebted for the knowledge and skills Mr. Gordon passed along. Mr. Gordon and his legacy will forever remain close in our hearts. He will dearly be missed. From our family to yours, we send comforting prayers and love.
