Dear Vivian and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed working with Gordon at RS. He was kind and always willing to help. I appreciated all of the extra things he did for my classroom and children. May God be with you.

It was my privilege to work with Gordon at the Roland-Story Elementary School. His wry sense of humor and quiet involvement were always a joy to the staff.

With sympathy,
