    It was so sad to hear of Gordon's passing, Irene. I remember the friendship Hank and I had with you and Gordon. Hank and Gordon were both railroaders and had a lot of stories to share. We were fortunate to get to know you through Everett & Betty who were our neighbors. I am so sorry for you and your family for your loss. Gordon was a good man with a good heart and he will be remembered.
