Lorie, William and Elizabeth;
I knew Gordon as a colleague at Ohio State. In fact I have met all of you previously while you lived in Columbus. I am very saddened by your loss. Gordon had such an outgoing personality and always engaged others. He retired early and he once told me that he did so because he wanted to be able to live before he departed this world. He was able to do that when others would not have had the courage to do so. It was the right decision for him and all of you. I will remember him always and will keep you in my thoughts during this difficult time.
