To the Stoker Family: I am terribly sorry for your loss. The Jordanaires quartet was a prime example of the most significant contributors to American music history. I am thankful for Gordon's God-given talent, shared with the world for more than 60 years. One would be hard-pressed to locate a recording made in Nashville, between 1955 and 1980 on which one couldn't hear the voice of Hugh Gordon Stoker. I am grateful that the Jordanaires (or as Elvis sometimes called them, "The Gordonaires") were in the vanguard of bringing four-part harmony to popular music, and were center-stage in creating the great Nashville Sound.
I am thankful to God for Gordon's legacy. And may the Lord grant each of you peace and comfort at this difficult time.
