As the computer aide at Cambridge Apartments where Gordon lived, I got to know him and enjoy his many stories. He shared his fascinating history and his lifelong regrets with his friends at Cambridge and we do miss his charm.

Gordon was always a pleasant addition to the family gatherings. I'm glad I got to see him again just a few years ago.
We should all have such a long and full life!
