O my God! O Thou forgiver of sins, bestower of gifts, dispeller of afflictions!
Verily, I beseech thee to forgive the sins of such as have abandoned the physical garment and have ascended to the spiritual world.

To Julie and the Buchanan Family.
I spoke to my dad Wayne Marquis about Gords passing. He wanted me to pass along his condolences and wanted you to know he had alot of respect for Gordon and had great memories of Gordon and lots of good times. They tried to keep on touch over the years but couldn't maintain the communication. Sorry to hear of his sudden passing and our thoughts are with your family during these hard times.

Diana, we are so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of your dear husband. We I can't imagine what you and your girls are going through. We didn't know Gordon as well as we know you, however the few times that I spoke to him, it came across how much he cherished you. . Our thoughts and prayers are with you and with both families.
