I’m so sorry for your loss of Gordon. I worked with Gordon at the Doubletree Grand Hotel. He was a great guy and I enjoyed working with him everyday. He always could make me laugh when I was having a bad day. RIP Gordy .
10 days later you pass after your Ma. This was too much for you. I was glad to give you a big hug. You definitely will not be forgotten. R.I.P Cousin Gordy. Sorry I will not be able to make it there to tell you farewell. I will say a prayer for you that day Cuz.
I am very sorry for your loss. Both for Gordy and his mom. Gordy was my favorite coworker at Axel’s Charhouse. He was the best coworker anybody could ever ask for. Not to mention, his soup that he would make everyday was awesome. I think his soup could literally beat out anybody elses in the whole world. He brought joy to work each and every day and always put a smile on my face. He was in two of my fantasy football leagues this year and I ran both of his leagues due to Gordy’s health complications. It was his best year ever in fantasy football, lol. He even made the playoffs in one of the leagues. When I found out about Gordy, it broke my heart. Not only was he my favorite coworker ever, but also a dear friend of mine. I will miss him so much and never forget all the memories we shared together. I will continue to pray for your family and God bless! Love, Nick
Sorry to hear about your loss.
