To Gordon's children - stay strong and know that your father's spirit is still very much with you. I lost my father when I was 8 years old and now I am 54. I don't think i ever felt without my father. Someone continued to guide me and take care of me. I never felt alone. So, keep this mind, your dad might not be physically present, but you will still continue to be guided and looked after by him. Trust me, I know. With lots of affection.
