Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry for your loss, I only wish I could be there with you. My prayers to all the family.

I was sad to learn that Gordon had passed away.
I was his admin. assistant at Mass Mutual from
1978-1988 and we were also friends. I recall taking all three of the kids to the cinema in West Spfld. for the new summer blockbuster-Star
Wars- and Geoff & Matt were crazy excited to see it. Gordon also asked if I would take Jen to The Cars concert at the Civic Center as it
would not be "cool" for her to attend with her
father. She and I enjoyed it and had a good
time. He was a good dad.

So sorry for your loss.
