Hello Gordy family. You may know our son, Danny Dyer has lived at Hazelwood for over 40 years too. So our two sons have known each other for a long time. Being the family of one of Hazelwood's special residents has taken us through so much with our loved ones, but love carries us through it all.
Our hearts ache for you, knowing that Evans funeral will not be the way you would like to have it.
Know that we are sending our love and sumpathy.

Gordy,
It was a privilege to take care of you. I will miss you unbuckling your seat belt and chuckling as we scrambled to get to you and put it back on. You are without a doubt one of the clients with the biggest personality that I come to love. Rest easy Gordy and make sure you save some beers for the rest of us.

What a loss, such a kind and kindred spirit. Gordy it was a pleasure meeting and taking care of you. I remember the good ole days when you were on 3west and pretty much moved to other floors and settled on 2 west. You will be missed. From drinking your non alcoholic beers to helping Sue bet on the horses. You were truly awesome.

When I was the Music Therapist at Hazelwood, Evans would frequently join the group, but, at a distance. He would be the jokester by backing down the hall, just far enough to tease me, but, close enough to share in the music. What joy he brought to us all!
