I have had the pleasure of becoming close with George and Mollie Cowden over the years, as they are one of my most favorite regulars at the restaurant I work at. I was sickened at the story of the shootings in Colorado, and was kind of avoiding any coverage becuase I knew it would break my heart hearing those stories. I then was out of the state on a family vacation, and upon my return to work I learned that Gordon, precious son of George and Mollie was one of the many to lose his life that night. This news has broken my heart completley, as George has become like a grandfather to me- the grandfather that I never had. I've had the pleasure of meeting Gordon a couple of times, and I could tell George was so proud to him his son. I could also tell what a great man he was, what a loving and tender heart he has. I am deeply saddned for the entire Cowden family for having to suffer the loss of such a great man. My whole heart goes out to your family, and my thoughts and prayers will be with you for a lifetime.

To Gordon's family and friends: The lost of your life in such a senseless tragedy will not be forgotten. You live on through your children. The pictures of you and your four children show such a beautiful family. All the world grieves for you and the 11 other people who lost their life. It is so hard to understand why these things happen. I wish you could real all the beautiful messages in this guest book. Rest in peace in our loving Father's arms. You may be gone but never forgotten.

Cowden Family,
We are writing from Jackson, TN. We knew Gordon's grandfather, Homer Waldrop. My husband was in the law firm with Mr. Waldrop, such a fine man. The description of Gordon has reminded us of Mr. Waldrop. We are just now making the connection. Of course, we have been so devastated by this ocurrence in Aurora and now we are even more so. Cowden family , please know you have our heartfelt sympathy. I am thinking that kind, sweet Mr. Homer Waldrop is holding his wonderful grandson Gordon somewhere in heaven as we weep. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Sincerely,

Jeanie and James D Todd, Jackson, TN

So very sorry that someone like Gordon was taken away from his family and friends. He sounds like a perfect example of what the world needs more of. Wish I could have known him. Gordon, see you at the Pearly Gates!
